Guantanamo: Who, What, Why

Date & Time November 21, 2019 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Crane Room, Paige Hall
Amnesty International

Tufts Amnesty International in collaboration with Tufts University Prison Initiative of Tisch College and ALLIES will be hosting a discussion with Dr Stephen Soldz on the history of Guantanamo prison and of the interrogations and trials that occurred and are taking place there.    

Stephen Soldz is a clinical/research psychologist and social activist whose scholar/activist efforts over the past twelve years have focused on the role of psychologists and other health providers in the U.S. government’s torture program. His work resulted in worldwide press coverage, including a report that was featured on the front page of the New York Times.

His work and that of colleagues also resulted in major changes in American Psychological Association policies regarding psychologists’ involvement in national security interrogations, resulting in the removal of psychologists from Guantanamo by the Defense Department.
