Webinar: Justice denied: 13 years of closure in the occupied Gaza Strip
EuroMed Rights and CIDSE are pleased to invite you to this one-hour webinar discussing the lack of accountability for daily human rights violations taking place in the Gaza Strip. After 13 years of closure, victims have been left without prospect for redress, justice and reparations.
The webinar will address three themes in particular:
- Israel’s responsibilities towards the population of Gaza;
- The systematic impunity for human rights and international law violations within the Gaza Strip;
- The prospects of international accountability mechanisms such as the International Criminal Court and its ongoing proceedings on Palestine.
