Our Upcoming YJIL Discussion

A note to our readers:  I inadvertently jumped the gun a bit in my earlier post about the Security Council and raised Professor Michael Glennon’s YJIL article, The Blank Prose Crime of Aggression, on which Kevin has also commented.  We imagine that some readers will also want to weigh in.  It turns out that in March, we will be discussing the article as part of the regular symposium with YJIL, including Professor Glennon and several outside commenters.  So I am going to propose that we treat the posts below as a teaser for the March symposium which, clearly, promises to be very lively, and hold off on saying more until we reach March.
