Preview

This chapter focuses on the contributions of Israeli and Palestinian cause lawyers to the creation and development of a human rights movement in Israel and Palestine, with particular focus on the protection of the rights of residents in the Occupied Territories, and on the work of lawyers within the Israeli military court system. Their activities demonstrate that mobilization around the cause of human rights is not an effect of globalization but one of its manifestations.
