Law at the

End of War:

Fighting Terrorism

after Afghanistan

Monday, October 14, 2013

6 p.m.

In a major address on terrorism last May, President Obama reiterated his deter-mination to end U.S. combat operations in Afghanistan in the coming year, and to pursue a counterterrorism policy that avoids "keeping America on a perpetual wartime footing." What might such an approach mean for U.S. detention and targeting operations? What legal constraints and structures will apply?

A panel of distinguished national security experts will consider what counter-terrorism law and policy can and should be after a decade of terrorism wars.
