Gadi Ezra holds an unparalleled perspective on war – as both a human rights attorney on the one hand and a soldier in the Israeli Special Forces on the other. Selected by Forbes Magazine as one of the most influential leaders in Israel under the age of 30, Gadi will examine the complexities of applying the laws of warfare in actual combat, illustrating modern challenges using first-hand experiences. His lecture exemplifies the difficult dilemmas soldiers face in modern warfare.

More about our Speaker:

Gadi holds three law degrees and is currently pursuing his PhD. while counseling different entities on Public Law. Previously, Gadi headed the Laws of War desk at the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs (where he advised diplomats on humanitarian law, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, human rights, and sanctions regimes), and was selected to clerk directly for the State Attorney of Israel, Mr. Moshe Lador, where he participated in cardinal decision-making processes.
