Palestine and Apartheid Under International Law

May 24, 2022 8:30 AM - 9:45 AM

Respected voices have independently determined that conditions imposed on Palestinians meet the criteria for apartheid, including most recently, Michael Lynk in his report to the UN Human Rights Council. Lynk has just concluded his UN Special Rapporteurship on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, and his findings further square the reality of these apartheid conditions with international law.

Join us as we engage Michael Lynk in conversation with leading experts from Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and Palestinian civil society to discuss Palestine and apartheid under international law.
