Litigating Palestine: Holding Israel Accountable in the Courtroom

This issue of al-Majdal draws on the research and experience of the participants in the Israel Review Conference (http://israelreview.bdsmovement.net), and the topics on which they focused to provide an overview of routes, challenges, and recommendations for "Litigating Palestine." They evaluate past attempts at taking Israel and its abettors to court, assess the role of law in attaining justice for victims, and - perhaps of particular interest to non-lawyers - the role of civil society in supporting legal battles to attain justice for Palestinians.
