The Dean’s Office presents:

“Election Interference: International Law and the Future of Democracy”

Monday, October 19

12:15 – 1:30 PM

VIA Zoom Webinar


Jens David Ohlin, Vice Dean and Professor of Law

Professor Ohlin’s work stands at the intersection of four related fields: criminal law, criminal procedure, public international law, and the laws of war. Trained as both a lawyer and a philosopher, his research has tackled questions as diverse as criminal conspiracy and the punishment of collective criminal action, the philosophical foundations of international law, and the role of new technologies in warfare, including cyberwar, remotely piloted drones, and autonomous weapons.

His latest research project involves foreign election interference. This project resulted in a monograph published on the eve of the 2020 election, Election Interference: International Law and the Future of Democracy; (CUP 2020), and a forthcoming edited volume entitled Defending Democracies: Combatting Foreign Election Interference in a Digital Age (OUP 2021, with D. Hollis).
