Professor Geraldine Van Bueren QC - It's now time for Israel to grow up and join up

Published:

Thirteen years since the International Criminal Court (ICC) came into force it's time for Israel to reconsider becoming a member, argues Professor Geraldine Van Bueren QC in a comment piece for The Jewish Chronicle. She writes that remaining outside of the ICC has added to the country's sense of isolation and has not helped diplomatically. "Currently Israel has all the disadvantages without being able to access the court to bring complaints and without the important symbolism attached to membership of the ICC."
