This meeting was convened at Chatham House on 27 November 2009 to address some of the criticisms which have been directed against the Report of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict (UN Doc.A/HRC/12/48, 15 September 2009) [hereinafter the Goldstone Report]. The participants in the meeting were recognized experts in public international law who have specialized in human rights and/or international humanitarian law. The aim was that they should primarily address criticisms made regarding procedural aspects of the Goldstone Report rather than its substantive conclusions, since the participants had not had access to all the evidence collected by the Mission.
