The computer revolution has made possible the development of extraordinary new weapons. Although our current legal and moral principles do not permit force in any but the most serious situations and as a last resort, government officials and certain academics are arguing for new interpretations of the rules.
Mary Ellen O’Connell, professor of law and research professor of international dispute resolution at the University of Notre Dame, will address these arguments, which she believes are inconsistent with the fundamental right to life.
|Mary Ellen O'Connell, who will argue that|

expand the use of force are incompatible with the
fundamental right to life.
This lecture is part of “The Faith That Does Justice Series” sponsored by the College’s Office of Mission and Identity.
