The American Society of International Law is featuring just one Goldstone panel during a conference filled with discussion of “International Law in a Time of Change,” a clear reference to the Goldstone effect. Goldstone’s sure to come up, even in State Department official Anne Marie Slaughter’s appearance at the lead lecture, on changing standards. Here’s the key panel, in the morning, so folks sleep through it…

The Goldstone Report and the Modern Law of War 10:45am – 12:15pm Salon I The Report of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict (the Goldstone Report) has given rise to sharp disagreements about the operation of international humanitarian law in modern asymmetric warfare.
