Seminar: "Palestine ConCourt judges discussing courts & human rights protection"

16 September 2020

In September, the Constitutional Transformation Team (CTN) partnered with Palestinian Constitutional Studies Center (PSCS). The PCSC hosted an experts’ session with members of the Palestinian Constitutional Court to the courts roles in human rights protection.

Eight judges of the Constitutional Court participated in Palestine, with the CTN team engaging online via Zoom. Dr Tom Daly led the session, with support from Prof Cheryl Saunders. The discussion was very engaging, with judges sharing their own experiences and reflections on the topic. Tom provided a range of comparative perspectives, including from his home country of Ireland, reflecting on the specific challenges of rights protection in countries managing major political transitions.
