CONVERSATION

Adolf Eichmann claimed he was “just following orders.” In 1957 the Israeli legal system established the concept of a “blatantly illegal order” to explain when a military or security-related order should — or must not — be followed. Professor Moshe Halbertal (Gruss Professor of Law at NYU and co-author of the Israeli Army Code of Ethics) will discuss command responsibility and the ethics of war with Brigadier General Cindy Jebb (Dean of the Academic Board, U.S. Military Academy, West Point), moderated by Michael Walzer (Professor Emeritus of Social Science, Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton).
