Second Quarter 2023 HighlightsMonday 26/06/2023

The Jerusalem Institute of Justice is making a substantial impact; read the quarterly highlights. Your continued support enables us to carry out our mission of protecting human rights, promoting the rule of law, and advocating on behalf of Israel.

Two weeks ago, JIJ urgently submitted a recommendation to the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court regarding crucial policy changes related to crimes against or affecting children. Our unwavering aim is to drastically improve the current approach to addressing this critical issue and ensure that justice is served for all innocent victims. More details here.

JIJ has submitted a comprehensive report to the UN Human Rights Committee, revealing the stark discrepancies between the Palestinian government’s claims of adhering to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the disturbing reality of inadequate law enforcement, incitement to violence, and numerous instances of torture and inhumane treatment of the Palestinian people. Read more here.

The proposed judicial reform in Israel has been a source of significant controversy. We have closely followed this debate, understanding the potential ramifications on democracy, the principle of checks and balances, and human rights within Israel. Find out more.

The Interior Ministry’s decision to halt the provision of visa services negatively impacts the lives of many of JIJ’s free legal aid clients. We have filed a petition with the High Court of Justice, urging the restoration of these vital services for thousands of people. We firmly believe that addressing matters such as passport backlogs is important. However, it should be done in a manner that avoids the creation of further complications. Learn more.

The participants of our GDC Israel program are making headlines. This program is dedicated to nurturing future leaders who will advocate for justice. We’re immensely proud of their achievements. Check out their stories.

Lastly, we invite you to watch and share our video celebrating Israel’s 75th anniversary. This milestone is a testament to the resilience and spirit of the Israeli people. Watch the video here.
