The Peace Process and International Law, featuring Arthur Lenk
Join Arthur Lenk, Director of the Department of International Law in Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for a public lecture on the peace process in Israel. With recent events in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia, the whole world looks towards a region looking for the democracy and opportunity that is so basic to life for Israelis and Americans. Israel's legal system has repeatedly shown itself to be able to protect the rights of individuals while honoring the highest traditions of international and constitutional law. Israel remains on the cutting edge of international humanitarian law and is continuously seeking the proper balance between protecting its civilians from the threats of terrorism while ensuring that the rule of law remains at the center of Israel's values.
