Lives and Livelihoods under Occupation: Israeli Policies & Practices in the OPT

Thursday, October 11, 2018
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
1 hour of in-person CLE credit, pending approval

The presentation will discuss the impacts of restrictions on family unification, collective punishment, resource exploitation, and other policies used by Israel in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip. Cases will be examined in light of Israel’s duties as occupying power under international humanitarian law and international human rights law. Within the context of an absence of domestic recourse for Palestinians, the role of third states and multinational institutions in holding Israel accountable will also be examined. After 51 years of occupation, how can international law be used to end impunity?
