TORQUE

Coming February 16, 2021

A Special Topics publication for Kaye Labs/Celia Kaye.

The absence of a clear, universally accepted legal definition of torture is not just a theoretical issue; the practical consequences of confusion over what precisely constitutes torture are severe. Using waterboarding as a case study, Torque analyzes the language of torture, the morality of torture, and the importance of communicating an explicit US policy in order to maintain accountability and diplomatic relations.
