On 15 – 16 November, LAW chaired ‘Violations of International Law and occupied Palestine,’ a closed Roundtable, at the offices of Bindmans LLP in London.
The Roundtable brings together experts to discuss ongoing transnational litigation cases, strategies and challenges and provide updates on relevant thematic issues. The forum is closed and all discussion is confidential – one of the purposes is to provide a space in which litigators can think creatively and share ideas. It is one of the few spaces bringing Israeli and Palestinian lawyers together in a neutral environment where they can speak freely and confidentially. Topics of discussion included the role of multinational organisations involved in the occupation of Palestine, Palestine’s application to institute proceedings before the International Court of Justice against the United States of America regarding the transfer of its Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and the innovative use of technology in securing accountability for violations of international law.
