EU complicity in Israeli human rights abuses

Ben Hayes
February 2011

Evidence given at the Russell Tribunal on Palestine, and the EU's provision of research grants to Israeli security companies complicit in violations of human rights law.

In November 2010, Ben Hayes of Statewatch and Transnational Institute provided written and oral testimony to the London session of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine.

The Tribunal heard how the EU is providing research grants to Israeli
military and security companies that may be complicit in Israel’s
violations of international humanitarian law and international human
rights law.
