Case Study Published: Alberto Mora and the Case Against Torture at Guantanamo Bay

Apr 5, 2022

On 5 April, the Blavatnik School of Government launched ‘Allegations and Interrogations: Alberto Mora and the Case Against Torture at Guantanamo Bay’, a case study developed by ELAC Deputy Director Federica D’Alessandra in collaboration with Co-Director Dapo Akande and Senior Case Writer Oenone Kubie. The case study looks at former-General Counsel to the US Navy Alberto Mora’s campaign to reverse US policies permitting the torture of detainees following the US invasion of Afghanistan in 2001. It was developed for the international human rights class in the MPP’s Law and Public Policy module with the aim of capturing the complexity of international law as applied to a real-world situation and demonstrating the interrelated nature of law and policy. The case study will be taught on both the MPP course and the Blavatnik School’s Executive Programme on Military Judgment and Leadership.
