As the days of the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas have come to a close, some serious questions will be asked about the IDF by many critics of the state of Israel. First and foremost: Is this a just and moral war? What does the concept of “proportionality” mean during armed conflict? What is the first obligation of any government? Is the IDF behaving morally, ethically, and legally according to the standards set forth under international law?

Here to answer these questions is Natasha Hausdorff, Director of UK Lawyers for Israel. UK Lawyers for Israel uses the law against attempts to undermine, attack, and de-legitimatize the state of Israel, Israeli organizations, Israelis, and supporters of Israel.

About the Speaker: Natasha Hausdorff is a barrister in London, who holds law degrees  from Oxford and Tel Aviv Universities and was a Fellow in the National Security Law Programme at Columbia Law School.

Natasha previously worked for Skadden Arps, in London and Brussels and clerked for the President of the Israeli Supreme Court, Chief Justice Miriam Naor, in Jerusalem.

She speaks frequently on international law, foreign affairs and national security policy on television and through the media.
