IHL Film & Forum Series: Doctors of the Dark Side

international humanitarian law

The International Humanitarian Law Film & Forum Series presents Doctors of the Dark Side.

"First, do no harm." That is the physicians' creed. Yet, in the film, Doctors of the Dark Side, physicians and psychologists are exposed as being complicit in implementing torture practices in a number of US detention centers. Is this a scandal? Where do the Geneva Conventions stand on this issue? Where does the medical community stand? Join us at a screening of the film, followed by a discussion led by Dr. Stephen Soldz, Advisor on Torture with Physicians for Human Rights, to explore these important issues in international humanitarian law.
