Final Year Project

Project Title

‘Some Rise by Sin, and Some by Virtue Fall’ – Investigating the Incongruities in Israel’s Self-Vindication from the Sabra and Shatila Massacre


Written for the course ‘History and Politics of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict,’ this research utilized historical investigation in order to investigate how Israel was able to vindicate itself from its involvement in the Sabra and Shatila massacre. In addition, this research examined how intense lobbying and political pressure prevented the legal doctrine of universal jurisdiction from being applied to this case. This paper reinforced the dilemma concerning the inherent tension between politics and law with regard to international criminal justice.
