Human Rights in Palestine: A Conversation with the UN Special Rapporteur

UN Special Rapporteurs are independent experts reporting and advising on issues related to human rights. One of them investigates the human rights situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) and reports on Israel’s violations of international law.
Francesca Albanese was appointed as Special Rapporteur in May 2022. Since 2008, Israel has denied the Special Rapporteur access to the OPT and Albanese has yet to visit the OPT.
How does the occupation affect the human rights of the people living in Gaza and the West Bank? And how has this changed since 7 October 2023?
We have invited Albanese to a conversation about her mandate and the human rights violations in Palestine. How does she carry out her job? What recommendations does she provide for the international community?
The conversation will be joined by Professor Terje Einarsen (UiB), expert in International Criminal Law, and moderated by PhD Candidate Chiara Morfea (UiB). Albanese will participate digitally.
