Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

'Israel is an Apartheid State': An Examination of Israeli Policies in Comparison with South Africa and International Law
by Tennent, Geoffrey C., M.A., University of Denver, 2014, 148; 1567707
Abstract (Summary)

The situation in which the Palestinians are living, both within Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories continues to worsen with little end in sight. The exact status of the Palestinians, however, has been the subject of much debate with terms such as 'disputed territories,' 'occupied territories,' and even a state of apartheid being used. This study seeks to examine whether the concept of apartheid applies to Israel/Palestine. Two methods were used to define apartheid, a South Africa case study and its definition under international law. Israel's laws, policies, and practices, both in its own territory and the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem are compared with these definitions of apartheid in an attempt to ascertain to what extent the claim of apartheid is applicable to these situations.
