Professor Aeyal Gross' book, The Writing on the Wall, offers a critical perspective on the international law of occupation. Advocating a normative and functional approach to occupation and to the question of when it exists, it analyzes the application of humanitarian and human rights law, pointing to the risk of using the law of occupation in its current version to legitimize new variations of conquest and colonialism.

Speakers include:

Professor Aeyal Gross
Faculty of Law, Tel Aviv University

Dr. Darryl Li
Assistant Professor of Anthropology
The University of Chicago
