Drawing on his experiences in South Africa, on his work as special prosecutor for the Bosnia and Rwanda tribunals, and for his leadership of the UN commission on the Gaza War, Justice Goldstone discusses the distinctive features of the South African transition, the ground breaking work that facilitated a breakthrough in the Bosnia conflict, and the goals and accomplishments of the commission examining the conduct of Hamas and Israel in the Gaza War. He concludes with lessons learned from his efforts to insure the rule of law.

One thought on “Conversations with History — Richard J. Goldstone”

  1. There are some good point here. However, I do object to the use of “democracy” when we are a “REPUBILC” and as Benjamin Franklin said: “If you can keep it that way..” We no longer seem to have greatstatemen who understand that it was through the Constitution that the United States became the greatest nation in freedom and opporunity.
    Time to cut off ALL Foreign AId and keep the Billions of dollars here at home where need the “aid.”

    Time to put back our country to the high standard it once maintained…..
