An outcome document of the conference “Law and Politics: Options and Strategies in International Law for the Palestinian People”, Birzeit University Institute of Law, 8 -9 May 2013: http://lawcenter.birzeit.edu/userfiles/Public_Report_BZU_Conference_FINAL.pdf
Published by the Civic Coalition for Palestinian Rights in Jerusalem in cooperation with the Birzeit University Institute of Law. It explains briefly:
1) Why speaking only about “occupation” is not enough;
2) Why we should rather speak about (settler) colonialism, population transfer (ethnic cleansing) and apartheid, in addition to occupation;
3) How we can do so in accordance with international law; and,
4) Why colonialism, population transfer and apartheid, as legal frameworks, are helpful for building pressure on third parties to take action against Israel’s oppressive regime.
