INFO:

On 13th June 2018, in this timely and important talk, preeminent Palestinian human rights defender Shawan Jabarin addressed recent developments in Gaza: the remarkable mass movement that emerged in the form of the Great March of Return, and the response of the Israeli military – including the use of lethal force and explosive bullets against civilians, as well as open-fire rules of engagement that have been approved by the Israeli Supreme Court. Jabarin also talked about the diverse range of ongoing attempts to hold Israel to account for its violations of international law in the Palestinian territories – from potential war crimes investigations by the International Criminal Court to forthcoming proposed legislation in Ireland to ban trade with illegal settlements in occupied territories.

About the speaker

Shawan Jabarin is the General Director of Al-Haq, the largest, oldest and best known human-rights organization in the Palestinian territories. In 2011 he was appointed to the Human Rights Watch Middle East Advisory Board, and in 2013 he was elected as a Commissioner for the International Commission of Jurists. In 2016 he was elected Secretary-General of FIDH: International Federation of Human Rights.

After studying sociology at Birzeit University in the 1980s, Jabarin later studied law in Ireland. He is a graduate of the Irish Centre of Human Rights, NUI Galway, where he completed the LL.M programme in 2004-05, supported by a grant from the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs Irish Aid programme. In 2010, the Irish Centre of Human Rights presented him with its first and only distinguished graduate award.

Jabarin began volunteering with Al-Haq while he was a student at Birzeit University. He joined Al-Haq as a field researcher in 1987. He became its director in 2006. He has been subject to administrative detention without trial, travel bans and death threats for his work as a human rights defender, and has been supported in campaigns by Amnesty International, Front Line Defenders, Israeli human rights organisation B’Tselem, and others. He was awarded the Reebok Human Rights Award in 1990 for his defence of freedom of expression and human rights, and has been received numerous other human rights awards since, personally and on behalf of Al-Haq.
