"Holy Places in the Old City of Jerusalem: An International Legal Perspective"


Mon, 02/06/2017 - 16:00

Holy places play a central role in the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, sometimes more so than the political actors from each side care to admit.  What is the status of key holy places in the Old City of Jerusalem, what impact might international law have on these sites and in turn on eventual negotiations (if at all), and does domestic law play a role as well? The lecture will account for both historical developments and ongoing social changes to offer an overview of the myriad of issues that are at play when accounting for the importance to both sides of holy places.
