Moot Courtroom (A59)

In January 2009, President Obama signed an executive order banning torture and calling for the closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility within a year. Authorities must now decide what to do about the detainees at Guantanamo Bay as well as the former officials behind the torture policies and memos. In this unique day-long conference, two dozen of the world’s leading experts participating in four roundtable discussions will examine such questions as: Who must be released from U.S. detention? Where should they be sent? Where should the remaining detainees be held? What procedures should govern their continued detention? Which of the remaining detainees should face trial? What form of trial should be used? And should the architects of the U.S. torture policies and memos face justice?
