The Wall and the Gate: Israel, Palestine, & the Legal Battle for Human Rights


Preeminent Israeli human rights lawyer Michael Sfard asks difficult questions about the role human rights lawyers play in challenging Israel’s occupation in his new book, “The Wall and the Gate: Israel, Palestine & the Legal Battle for Human Rights.” In an in-depth discussion hosted by FMEP President Lara Friedman, Sfard reflects on many of the book’s most profound questions, including Sfard’s personal reflections on the challenges facing lawyers who want to end the occupation and bring justice to Palestinians in the interim. The event was hosted by the Foundation for Middle East Peace, the New Israel Fund, and the American University George Washington School of Law.
