LAW L023 - A&L Goodbody Lecture Theatre

Implications of the International Court of Justice’s Order for provisional measures in Application of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in the Gaza Strip (South Africa v. Israel) (26 January 2024).

About the event

This event, organised by academics at the Sutherland School of Law, aims to explore the legal implications of the ICJ’s Provisional Measures of 26 January 2024, in particular its implications for third states, including Ireland. We also hope that the event will provide an opportunity to reflect on the role and limitations of international law in defining, preventing, and seeking accountability for atrocities.

Speakers include:

Aisling Swaine, Full Professor of Peace, Security and International Law; Amy Strecker, Associate Professor of Cultural Heritage Law and Cathryn Costello, Full Professor of Global Refugee and Migration Law.
