April 12, 2013

On Monday, April 8, Dr. Michael Strauss, Professor of International Relations at the Paris-based Center for Diplomatic and Strategic Studies (CEDS), spoke to a room of law students, professors, and community members concerning the lease between the United States and Cuba concerning Guantanamo Bay.

Dr. Strauss described how the lease affected both international law and diplomatic relations for the United States. Dr. Strauss also discussed the lessons learned from the jurisdictional gap—the “legal black hole”—that has been a topic of much concern and conversation since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
