Ensuring Access to Justice for Detainees in the War on Terror
"This panel focused on who should be detained and where, what should happen to the detainees currently being held at Guantanamo, and how detainees should be treated. It included discussion of the rules and policies that should govern interrogation and ensure clear prohibitions on torture. It also considered where and how terrorism suspects should be tried and whether national security courts are necessary. The discussions occurred in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision in Boumediene v. Bush."
