About the talk
Day Five, we explored broad frameworks for ethically assessing responses in the grey zone. Today we apply those frameworks to two specific grey zone activities--hostage taking and media warfare. We’re lucky to have the co-editors of the 2017 book Soft War: The Ethics of Unarmed Conflict--the first and currently only volume on the topic.
Dr. Tami Meisels is a political theorist at Tel Aviv University, and her research and teaching focus on nationalism, territorial rights, terrorism and warfare ethics. Her two books, Territorial Rights and The Trouble with Terror and Liberty: Security and the Response to Terrorism, are definitive works on those topics.View the profile
Dr. Michael L. Gross is a political ethicist and professor of political science at the University of Haifa where he is Chair of the Division of International Relations. He is the author of Bioethics and Armed Conflict, the first comprehensive study of medical ethics in conventional, unconventional, and low-intensity war which examines the dilemmas that arise when bioethical principles clash with military necessity. His contention is that medical ethics in time of war cannot be identical to medical ethics in peacetime. He is also the author of Moral Dilemmas of Modern War: Torture, Assassination, and Blackmail in an Age of Asymmetric Conflict (2010), Cambridge University Press, a wide-ranging study of military ethics, terrorism, modern weaponry and civilian immunity in contemporary armed conflict.View the profile
