Torture: During and After Action
Chapter 1 considers whether, from a nonconsequentialist perspective, those who are responsible for creating lethal threats are liable to be tortured during and after their threatening acts in order to stop those acts or harm from them. Different conceptions of torture and different occasions when torture might occur, in self and other defense, are considered. The aim is to isolate factors bearing on whether torturing a wrongdoer held captive violates human rights and the inviolability persons.
