With the Russian attack on Ukraine, the Academy’s spring 2022 Daimler fellow Lawrence Douglas’s project on aggressive war, atrocity and the “Verbrecherstaat” suddenly became very current.
On this episode of “Beyond the Lecture,” Douglas talks about the origin of the term “Verbrecherstaat,” considers Russia’s actions in light of the categories of aggressive war and atrocity, and explains the options and limitations of international law.
