Assumption College Hosts “A Public Conversation with John Yoo”

The continued threat of terrorism, the spread of weapons of mass destruction and rogue-states pose serious challenges to those concerned with the integrity of international law and global peace and order. "Just War Theory and the 21st Century: A Public Conversation with John Yoo" examined the prospects of meeting these challenges through the recovery of a venerable “Just War” tradition.

The conversation was held on Wednesday, Oct. 19, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., in Assumption College’s Hagan Center Hall. It is sponsored by Assumption College’s Department of Political Science

Yoo is best known for his work as an official in the U.S. Department of Justice during the George W. Bush Administration in the areas of foreign affairs, national security and the separation of powers. He recently co-edited the book, Confronting Terror: 9/11 and the Future of American National Security. Yoo is a professor of law at the University of California Berkeley.

Assumption Professor Bernard J. Dobski, chair of the political science department, interviewed Professor Yoo, who then took questions from the audience.
