Abstract

This special issue celebrates the work of David Luban. Besides the keynote article of Professor Luban, it contains comments by four renowned scholars and Luban’s reply to them. Professor Luban’s oeuvre largely covers two areas. On the one hand, he has written extensively on legal ethics. Recently, he has turned his attention to the use of torture by the U.S. Government and, specifically, to the role lawyers have played legitimizing this use. The other area in which professor Luban works is the philosophy of international criminal law. He has published highly influential articles on, among other topics, the concept of crimes against humanity and the legitimacy of international criminal law. His keynote article in this issue belongs to the second area. It addresses the question whether we ought to (re)introduce the notion of the enemy of humanity (hostis generis humani) within international criminal law.
