BADIL Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights releases a research paper on Corporate Complicity in Violations of International Law in Palestine.
The paper aims to draw attention to the role that private businesses play in Israel’s colonial enterprise and its ongoing oppression of the Palestinians. This is achieved through examining the case of Kardan NV and Kardan Yazamut Ltd., a Dutch and Israeli company involved in the Israeli colonization project of the West Bank.
Private companies play a major role in funding, facilitating and supporting Israeli violations of international law. They have enabled, facilitated and profited – directly or indirectly – from a wide range of Israeli practices that affect the violation of Palestinian rights. These include involvement in the Israeli colonial industry, purchase of produce of colonies, construction on occupied land, provision of services to colonies, exploitation of occupied resources, controlling the movement of the civilian population and the construction of the Annexation Wall.
