The World of Spycraft and the Law of Nations
The notion that international law is moot as to the question of if, when, and how intelligence is to be collected, analyzed, and promulgated, has been repeated so many times that it has reached the level of a dogma. Many international legal thinkers today reject the idea that there are any customary rules or general principles of law that might govern the shadowy practice of spooks and saboteurs. In this presentation Dr. Asaf Lubin, Associate Professor of Law at Indiana University Maurer School of Law, will propose a new and innovative legal framework for controlling the normative relationship between spy and spied, relying on a body of moral philosophy and intelligence ethics literature so far ignored by legal scholars. From non-official covers in clandestine human intelligence operations to cyber intrusions and mass digital interceptions, the proposed framework applies to all aspects of the daily activities of a sovereign nation's intelligence apparatus.

Foreign Affairs with Future Leaders is a series of youth-led discussions which analyze various international issues and topics by collaboratively addressing their most critical questions. They are co-hosted by the Onero Institute, the Delta Phi Epsilon Professional Foreign Service Fraternity and Sorority at GWU, the Women In International Security GW Student Branch, and the School for Ethics and Global Leadership
