On Monday March 28th, the Stanford International Law Society hosted a debate on the legacy of the Goldstone report and the larger application of international law to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict featuring Justice Richard Goldstone himself in one of his first public commentaries on the investigation. Four days later, Justice Goldstone published his controversial op-ed in which he "reconsiders" the Fact-Finding Mission`s Report. Debate panelist Abraham Bell, professor of law at the University of San Diego Law School, thereafter published an op-ed in the Jerusalem Post attributing Goldstone`s sudden shift to the Stanford debate. Other panelists included Noura Erakat, Jadaliyya co-editor and BADIL Legal Advocacy Coordinator, Victor Kattan, former teaching fellow at SOAS and Peter Berkowitz, senior fellow at the Hoover Institute. You can now watch the entire debate below.
