Ms. Cotler-Wunsh’s lecture will discuss her legislative proposals in the Knesset on language and equality rights, themes that are also relevant in Quebec law and politics. She will also discuss the recent International Criminal Court judgement against Israel and will discuss how this  decision represents an affront to the Court’s foundational principles.
