WHO WE ARE
HEAR MORE FROM OUR DIRECTOR, ARSEN OSTROVSKY, ON WHAT WE DO AND WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT
The International Legal Forum is a nonprofit, proactive legal hub, centralizing efforts of lawyers, organization and activists worldwide, in their fight to promote justice, peace and equality in Israel and the Middle East. The ILF provides them with the much-needed knowledge, strategic planning, research and international network in order to successfully tackle human rights violations, radical ideologies, terror and the BDS movement.
It is only in the past few years that groups and individuals have begun to try and advance these objectives. Yet many of them lack resources, experience, information and a broader perspective, leaving them to essentially fight this relatively new and important battle alone. We believe that joined efforts create leveraged relationships and therefore are a true necessity in the creation of true, sustainable change. That is why we are dedicated to providing thousands of lawyers, organization and activists with the tools they need and to incorporating them in our own initiatives, thus creating a global network of shared enterprises.
The ILF was founded by a group of lawyers and activists on the basis of a successful domestic forum, active for over ten years and its head offices are located in Tel Aviv. We cooperate with over 3000 lawyers, organizations and activists worldwide, alongside many key stakeholders and world government officials in over 20 different countries, including members of congress, European Parliament officials and members of the Knesset and Israeli government Ministries.
