From Promise to Action: The Duty of States to Cooperate to Bring Violations of International Law to an End

On the margins of the UN General Assembly 74th Session, Itay Epshtain moderated a discussion on the responsibility of States to respect, and ensure respect, for international law through lawful countermeasures.

 The panel featured Prof. Emeritus Michael Bothe (joining remotely from Frankfurt), Prof. Susan Akram, and Prof. Michael Lynk, the UN Special Rapporteur on occupied Palestinian territory, who collectively provided a detailed analysis of the responsibility of the international community to bring an end to the occupation of Palestinian territory, and other Israeli practices amounting to violations of international humanitarian and human rights law.
