Is Torture Ever Morally Justifiable?

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    In this paper I argue that torture is morally justified in some extreme emergencies. However, I also argue that notwithstanding the moral permissibility of torture in some extreme emergencies, torture ought not to be legalised or otherwise institutionalised.
