International Law and the Threat of Force
10:00 AM to Noon Friday, February 4, 2011, Lohrfink Auditorium, Georgetown University Main Campus
PROGRAM ON NONPROLIFERATION POLICY AND LAW, a joint project of
The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, Monterey Institute of International Studies and
The Institute for Law, Science and Global Security, Georgetown University
Advances in the development of WMD programs in the international system have led to a number of recommendations for action among the global community. While some have argued for stricter sanctions for violators of multilateral agreements, others posit that more severe measures should be considered. When weighing the options, what are the rules governing the use of force in the international system? Has there been a political change with respect to anticipatory self-defense and the threat of force?
Leading experts in the field of international law, global security, and nonproliferation have been assembled to discuss the legal and policy issues concerning the threat of force in the international system. Panelists include:
Professor Catherine Lotrionte – Moderator
Associate Director, Institute for Law, Science, and Global Security

Director, Master of Science in Foreign Service Program
Professor Orde Kittrie
Professor of Law, Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law
