Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This study investigates the ethical dilemma of the existence of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp. Speeches, books and articles by USA’s current president Barack Obama, former president George W. Bush, author Thomas Joscelyn and the organization Amnesty International are analysed with the use of discourse analysis, which eventually leads to a discussion about the opinions of the above, and a reason for them doing as they did or are doing. Therefore the differences are being accounted for and a comparison has been made. The treatment of the detainees and the use, or closing, of Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp is discussed by using the philosophical theories of philosophers Jeremy Bentham with utilitarianism and Immanuel Kant with the moral principle and merge these theories with the operators.
