Does Torture Work?

John W. Schiemann

Oxford University Press

Having established that interrogational torture fails, this chapter discusses some of the policy implications of that failure. It also draws on the implications, trade-offs, and paradoxes identified earlier to explore just why and how it fails. The chapter also discusses the role of formal models in political philosophy, drawing on John Stuart Mill as well as a more modern conceptualization of the use of formal models.

Keywords:   policy, formal models, John Stuart Mill
