Palestine, Race and International Law

Palestine, Race and International Law
Online (Zoom)

April 15th, 2024

Please join us for a virtual discussion panel with international legal scholars on how race and its relationship with international law has come up in three ongoing proceedings before the International Court of Justice (Legal Consequences arising from the Policies and Practices of Israel in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem; Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in the Gaza Strip (South Africa v. Israel); and Alleged Breaches of Certain International Obligations in respect of the Occupied Palestinian Territory (Nicaragua v. Germany)). Inter alia the discussion will address what we have learned from these proceedings about the limits and possibilities of international law (and the ICJ) in pursuing a global anti-racist politics, and how the question of Palestine continues to operate as a ‘limit experience’ for much critical jurisprudence on race and international law today.
