Stanford Constitutional Law Center's Constitutional Conversations

Professor Guiora's remarks were a comparison of American and Israeli approaches to legal and policy aspects of counterterrorism. The discussion addressed issues ranging from the limits of interrogation, to Constitutional rights granted to detainees (including their status), where they should be tried, under what legal regime and what rights they are to be granted in a trial. The discussion which which was inspired by the amicus submission of Israeli scholars in the Boumediene case heard December 5, 2007 before the US Supreme Court also included analysis of how other nation's (Russia, Spain and India) address these seminal issues.
