How States Justify Targeted Killings with Elena Chachko

This week's guest on The Global Cable is Elena Chachko, who is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Perry World House this year. She is a legal expert who has worked with Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its Supreme Court. On today's episode, Elena talks to us about what was the biggest foreign policy issue of the year before the COVID-19 pandemic hit - the assassination of Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani. She explains how international and U.S. law have evolved to allow for targeted killings like this, and shares her insights into the ongoing political crisis in Israel. Music & Produced by Tre Hester.
