“The Laws of Armed Conflict: A Historical View,” with Dr. John Fabian Witt
The laws of war, while widely adopted today, are a relatively recent invention in their current form. During the American Civil War, Franz Lieber, a German immigrant, professor, and writer, laid the ground work for the laws of armed conflict. Join us as Yale Law Professor and author, Dr. John Fabian Witt discusses both the ethical considerations and the important historical context surrounding the laws of armed conflict for military leaders today.
