This IHL talk aims at shining light on some of the many legal challenges stemming from the resurging violence in Israel and Palestine since May 2021.
In addition to the hostilities in and stemming from the Gaza strip, panelists will touch upon issues pertaining to the situation in the West Bank – including in neighbourhoods of East Jerusalem like Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan – such as annexation, forced displacement, and infringements on civil and political rights. The discussion will finally address considerations of criminal accountability, focusing on the crimes against humanity of apartheid and persecution.
