Guiora Provides Media Commentary on Prisoner Exchanges

Professor Amos Guiora

As the media continued to focus on the U.S.-Afghanistan prisoner exchange that freed U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, Amos Guiora, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, was interviewed by several media sources. 

On June 2, 2014, Guiora participated in an on-line debate about prisoner exchanges published in The New York Times.

 Titled “Dealing With the Enemy,” the discussion brought together four experts to share their perspectives on whether the U.S. should swap prisoners with extremist groups.

Guiora’s contribution, titled “Israel Has Understood the Need for These Deals,” is available here.

Giuora has also addressed the topic on Minnesota Public Radio, NPR, Reuters, ABC Radio, and Utah Public Radio
