Speaker: Dr. Eliav Lieblich, Buchmann Faculty of Law at Tel Aviv University 

In the past year, demonstrations have regularly taken place around the fence that separates between Gaza and Israel, often leading to clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces, resulting in hundreds of Palestinian casualties. The international responses to these events highlights not only conflicting narratives, but also fundamentally opposed legal views: both on the applicable legal regime and on its substance.

Join us to discuss these positions as expressed in various legal fora, and the challenges they pose for the protection of civilians under international humanitarian and human rights law.

Events are open to the public. Lunch will be provided.
