Legal Mechanisms and Ethical Concerns in Protracted Conflict

Situations of intractable conflict between nations, ethnicities, or groups, raise a unique set of concerns, both in terms of legal norms and in terms of a variety of social standards, such as morality and ethics.  How do we raise moral awareness among individuals in conflict situations?  Can cultural narratives – such as film and literature – address ethical responsibility issues in a society in conflict?  And to what extent do legal mechanisms, such as criminal or civil accountability, play a role in such contexts?  This interdisciplinary panel will discuss this complex reality by bringing in perspectives from law, social psychology, and literature.
Panelists: 
Prof. Ifat Ma'oz, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, visiting scholar, Department of Psychology, Stanford University
Renana Keydar,PhD Candidate, Department of Comparative Literature, Stanford University
Prof. Bernadette Meyler, Stanford Law School
