James Cavallaro, "Living Under Drones: Death, Injury, and Trauma to Civilians From US Drone Practices in Pakistan:"
Monday, March 18, 5-6:40 PM, Peterson Gym 242, San Diego State.
Professor Cavallaro has an extensive record in advocacy of human rights and scholarship. In the late 1980s, he worked with rights groups in Chile challenging abuses by the Pinochet government. In 1994, he opened a joint office for Human Rights Watch and the Center for Justice and International Law (CEJIL) in Rio de Janeiro and served as director of the office, overseeing research, reporting, and litigation against Brazil before regional human rights bodies. Professor Cavallaro is presently the founding director of Stanford Law School's International Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Clinic. He has written numerous studies on international human rights in Latin America and is the co-author of a widely cited critical study of the Obama Administration's practice of targeted killings, entitled Living Under Drones: Death, Injury, and Trauma to Civilians from US Drone Practices.
The event is part of the spring 2013 lecture series,
