International Humanitarian Law Principles – An Update on the Israel/Gaza Conflict

Please join us for the Third in the Lieber Society series, "International Humanitarian Law Principles--An Update on the Israel/Gaza Conflict." This panel will offer an update of our examination of the application of international humanitarian law (IHL) principles to the current conflict in Israel/Gaza. Expert panelists from academia and international NGOs will discuss a few core issues, including the recent International Court of Justice case, South Africa v. Israel, requirements for protections of civilians during conflicts, the relevance of the laws of occupation, and other issues relating to the application of humanitarian law principles. 

We aim to facilitate a calm and respectful consideration of different views on current heated debates. This panel is the third in our series on International Humanitarian Law--the first two webinars, from October 27, 2023 and January 12, 2024 are available on YouTube or the website.
