"Asymmetrical Wars: The Three Hardest Questions" with David Luban

As part of the Ethics and War Series, Professor David Luban will be hosting a talk at Stanford University tomorrow at 5:30pm. Using his extensive knowledge in war theory, international criminal law, and professional ethics, he will seek to answer "the three hardest questions:"

  1. When do civilians count as direct participants in hostilities?
  2. How should state armies deal with voluntary human shields?
  3. How much risk should soldiers assume to protect innocent "enemy" civilians?

Luban has been the Leah Kaplan Visiting Professor of Human Rights at Stanford Law School, and in 2011 he will be a fellow of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Hebrew University.

Time: Thursday, February 10, 2011. 5:30 PM (tomorrow)
Location: Annenberg Auditorium, 435 Lasuen Mall
