The Rule of Law with Richard J. Goldstone (Conversations with History)

4/11/2011; 59 minutes

Harry Kreisler welcomes Justice Richard J. Goldstone to discuss the role of law in transitions to democracy, the prosecution of war crimes, and the enforcement of the rules of war in a post 911 environment. Drawing on his experiences in South Africa, his work as special prosecutor for the Bosnia and Rwanda tribunals, and his leadership of the UN commission on the Gaza War, Goldstone discusses the features of the South African transition, the ground breaking work that facilitated a breakthrough in the Bosnia conflict, and the goals and accomplishments of the commission examining the conduct of Hamas and Israel in the Gaza War.
