Gaza War Crimes: Updates on Documentation and Advocacy concerning ‘Operation Protective Edge’
Wednesday, 26th of November 2014, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., Seminar Room, Irish Centre for Human Rights
by Valentina Azarov, lecturer at Birzeit University/ Al-Quds University and Bill van Esveld, researcher at Human Rights Watch
The seminar will examine the July-August fighting in Gaza and Israel in the context of previous rounds of hostilities since 2008, and discuss patterns of IHL violations, the legal implications of certain means and methods of warfare (e.g. attacks targeting inhabited residential buildings), and their relation to broader military objectives and doctrines. The seminar will discuss the role of UN commissions of inquiry – lessons from the ‘Goldstone process,’ and potential outcomes from the ‘Schabas commission’ – and address practical challenges to accountability, including obstacles to war crimes investigations, the prospect of prosecutions including at the ICC, and the potential of non-judicial enforcement mechanisms.
