International Law

International Law

An understanding of international law is central to the core principles of Brooklyn For Peace. We believe that international conflicts should be resolved peacefully via the United Nations and using internationally accepted rules of law. Principles and mechanisms established under international law should be used to identify, capture, and try individuals suspected of crimes against humanity, war crimes, or terrorist acts.

To gain a better knowledge of international law, we established a Task Force on International Law.
A series of three panels and discussions in Fall, 2010, addressed the question: Does the U.S. Violate International Law?

Co-sponsors were Brooklyn For Peace;
War Criminals Watch Project of World Can’t Wait;
National Lawyers Guild-NYC and Brooklyn Law Chapters;
Brooklyn Law School International Law Society.

Summary of those sessions and DVD’s (for the first two) and CD audio recording (for session three).

To inform ourselves about the Basics of International Law, we’ve developed several fact sheets, including an Overview

International Law Basics and overview

We also developed a Working Paper on the Goldstone Report, analyzing how principles of international law relate to the
Israeli invasion of Gaza (Dec 2008-Jan 2009, Operation Cast Lead)
