The Israeli attack on Gaza of 27 December 2008 - 18 January 2009 (so-called 'Operation Cast Lead') started a critical debate at the international level on the alleged war crimes and possible crimes against humanity committed during and before the operation. The book collects contributions by professors and scholars in the field of international law and puts together official documents that were produced at the international level before and as follow-up to the "Goldstone report". Part 1 brings together selected materials from the international conference "Is there a court for Gaza?", that was held on 22 May 2009 in Rome. Part 2 brings together contributions on the UN fact finding mission on the Gaza conflict and follow-up at the international and domestic level. Part 3 is dedicated to the legal debate on the admissibility of the Palestinian declaration pursuant to article 12(3) of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Finally part 4 deals with non-judicial responses, more specifically the Russell Tribunal on Palestine.
