War in Palestine/Israel and International Law

UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory Francesca Albanese will discuss the international legal dimensions of the ongoing war in Palestine/Israel. Albanese will focus on the importance of centering an international law framework which includes International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights Law and the importance of holding all parties accountable.

The UN Special Rapporteur will also discuss findings from her reporting on the situation in the occupied Palestinian territory. Her July 2023 report submitted to the UN delves into what she describes as “widespread carceralization” within the occupied Palestinian territory, where arbitrary deprivation of liberty characterizes Palestinian life “behind and beyond bars.” Her upcoming report to the UN General Assembly specifically focuses on the implications of this regime for children and childhood. Emphasizing the imperative of effective international legal measures, the Special Rapporteur explores how legality and accountability can help disentangle this intricate matrix of abuses, suffering, and death.
