Brown Bag Seminar: Rami G. Khouri, Senior Felow at the Dubai Initiative and Director of the Issam Fares Instittute for Public Policy at the American University of Beirut, will discuss the Goldstone Report on Gaza.
The Goldstone Report on Gaza, commissioned by the UN Human Rights Council, has immense political and legal implications for both the Palestinians and Israelis, and everyone else in the Middle East. It raises many critical issues, including the rule of law and international humanitarian law, accountability, and impunity in the Middle East as a whole.
“The Goldstone report has not received sufficient analysis and debate for the critical principles it represents in terms of using international legitimacy to address the runaway plague of violence that disfigures the entire region and much of the world,” says Khouri.
Will this report provide an important potential step towards reviving a serious Arab-Israeli peace process? And what are the challenges it raises for the US, Europe and the region?
