Constitutional Limits on Coercive Interrogation

Amos N. Guiora

  • Amos Guiora offers a theoretical analysis and a practical application of coercive interrogation, and suggests developing and implementing a hybrid paradigm based on American criminal law, the Geneva Convention, and the Israeli model of trial as the most relevant judicial regime
  • Indicates which interrogation methods are within the boundaries of the law by both recommending protection of the detainees and providing interrogators with the tools required to protect America's vital interests
  • Addresses the inherent tension between national security interests and individual civil rights
  • Uniquely utilizes historical analysis of the system of "justice" for African-Americans in the Deep South of the past century to serve as a guide for the constitutional rights and protections which need to be granted or extended to an unprotected class
