The War Works Hard won PEN’s Award for Poetry in Translation and was selected as one of New York Public Library’s 25 best books of 2005.

"Extraordinary Rendition" is a procedure by which U.S. authorities transfer suspects to the custody of third-party states outside formal legal procedures.  There have been disturbing reports that some of these detainees have been tortured by authorities after their transfer by the U.S.  A short documentary film that tells the story of two such detainees will be shown: "Outlawed: Extraordinary Rendition, Torture and Disappearances in the 'War on Terror.'"

Professor Laurel Fletcher, Director of the International Human Rights Law Clinic at Boalt Hall, will present an overview of the international law and policy applicable to the practice of extraordinary rendition and discuss the legality of the U.S. government's use of this practice in its efforts to combat terrorism.
