About the speaker:
Professor of International Law at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of St John's College, Cambridge. Before that I taught at the University of Oxford from 1980. My main publications are Judicial Remedies in International Law and International Law and the Use of Force (three editions).
About the lecture:
The significant increase in targeted killings by the USA under President Obama has led to growing demands for greater transparency about the legal justification for this controversial use of force. In response several members of the administration have recently made speeches about the legal rules governing targeted killing. This lecture will consider these speeches and identify some of the key questions that they have left unanswered.
