POSTPONED: The International Law Perspective on the Israel-Palestine Conflict
THIS SEMINAR WAS POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, DUE TO TRAVELLING RESTRICTIONS.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict comprises several thorny political and legal issues; such as the law of occupation, notions of sovereignty and territory, the rights of minorities and the structures of representative democracy. While international law is quite clear on some of these issues, the law operates within political contexts and as we have seen in the course of the past 20 years the respect for fundamental legal frameworks has been weakened.
In this seminar our distinguished legal experts will discuss and elaborate on the relevance of international law to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and what the legal assessment of the various political developments and initiatives would be.
