Professional Ethics, Torture and Accountability

Panel Discussion | April 11 | 12:45-2 p.m. | 170 Boalt Hall, School of Law

 Berkeley Law Committee Against Torture, Human Rights Center

Is political dissent unprofessional? This panel will reflect upon the ethical obligations of doctors, psychologists, and lawyers who find themselves serving states that engage in torture. Panelists will weigh the relative merits of working to curb abuses from within government and publicly speaking out against odious practices. The panel will also consider the civic duties of professionals in the private sector.

Joined by Rohini Haar (Physicians for Human Rights), Eric Stover (Human Rights Center) and Alexa Koenig (Human Rights Center)

Part of Torture and Accountability Week at Berkeley Law.
