What does the International Court of Justice (ICJ)’s almost unanimous voted to call on Israel to ensure no acts of genocide are carried out against Palestinians in Gaza mean for Israel’s supporters? Join us for MEMO in Conversation with legal expert from Law for Palestine, Kathryn Ravey, as we explore the anticipated ramifications on third-state responsibility, prevention and complicity.

Ravey reveals details of the work of Lawyers for Palestine and the actions it will be taking following the ICJ judgment. We also look at the global fallout, probing whether the ICJ’s credibility is at stake amid Gaza’s symbolic significance in the global narrative between the Global North and the Global South.

Dedicated to international human rights, Ravey focuses on corporate accountability and justice for marginalised communities. Her background centres on advancing human rights through evidence-based research, strategic communication and meaningful stakeholder engagement to work for a more equitable world. She completed a master’s degree in Human Rights at London’s UCL, focusing her dissertation on “Equity within Economic, Social and Cultural Rights: Unpacking the Standard of ‘Maximum Available Resources’.”
