Policy Brief 27/12/2023
International law is built on the foundation of sovereignty, a pillar of which is state
consent. A state’s legal obligations are overwhelmingly, though not exclusively, based
on its consent to be bound. The ICJ and ICC, in all likelihood, will be ineffective to
provide justice to the Palestinian people. However, all hope is not lost for Palestine
when it comes to redressal through international law. Palestine has done so in the past
and should continue to look towards the various specialized United Nations
committees established under different multilateral instruments and bodies.
