Lawfare: Historical and Semiotic Origins of “Lawfare” (Panel 1)

September 10, 2010
War Crimes Research Symposium
Frederick K. Cox International Law Center
Case Western Reserve University School of Law
Moderator:
Prof. Tawia Ansah, Visiting Professor, Case Western Reserve University School of Law
Speakers:
Prof. Wouter Werner, VU University, Amsterdam
Prof. Susan Tiefenbrun, Thomas Jefferson School of Law
Summary:

This symposium and Experts Meeting, featuring two-dozen leading academics, practitioners, and former government officials from all sides of the political spectrum, will examine the usefulness and appropriate application of the “Lawfare” concept.
