The US and Israel-Palestine: National Security, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law – A Discussion with Jamil Dakwar

Please join ILSP: Law and Social Change and the Julis-Rabinowitz Program on Jewish and Israeli Law for a discussion on challenges to the rule of law and human rights protection in Israel-Palestine, and the impact of recent shifts in United States policy. Jamil Dakwar, Director of the ACLU’s Human Rights Program, will discuss recent state responses to national security challenges and their impact on civil society, media freedoms, and spaces of human rights advocacy. Dakwar will draw on his extensive experiences as a human rights attorney in both Israel and the United States, and reflect on the continuous struggles for accountability and the rule of law, both domestically and through international mechanisms.

Lunch will be served.
