Can the President Be Torturer in Chief?, 81 Ind. L. Rev. 1145 (2006)
As I prepared to return today, I was struck-despite the passage of time-by how closely connected are my topics then and now. In the Harris Lecture, I asked a simple question: How should we understand the process of international human rights enforcement? I argued that there are not one, but two human rights enforcement stories. For shorthand purposes, I call these the "horizontal story" of human rights enforcement and the story that more people should understand: the "vertical" or "transnational story" of human rights enforcement.
