This chapter examines the practice of the Israeli Supreme Court in referencing the jurisprudence of international courts and tribunals when interpreting the international law by which Israel is bound. It notes the paucity of such referencing and examines its uses. While international jurisprudence has a limited role in guiding the Court’s own interpretative enterprise, it serves the Court in enhancing the legitimacy of its decisions in the eyes of both domestic and international audiences.
