The focus of our initiative is the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Our goal is to help politicians and policy-makers to make informed decisions on the fair and non-discriminatory application of international law to the Israel-Palestine conflict, and, in doing so, to promote the peaceful resolution of disputes based on UN Charter principles such as the sovereign equality of states, friendly relations between nations, and the Rule of Law.
