Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Law & Policy (LAW-795-003)
This seminar is intent on tackling the same grappling issues that U.S. Presidents and Secretaries of States have grappled with for decades. While the conflict is ongoing, both Israelis and Palestinians believe that “the law” is on their side. Other states and international organizations have shown their support (or lack thereof) using legal justifications throughout. Even the United States is required to do the same, whether it means determining the location of its embassy in Israel, figuring how it could legally provide aid to the Palestinians when it was under Hamas control, describing on a U.S. passport the country with which Jerusalem is located, or providing loan guarantees to Israel conditioned on dismantling settlements in the West Bank.
