Abstract

This paper compares the Israeli and U.S. constitutional law approaches to national security measures aimed at racial groups. In particular, it presents a case study comparing security-based racial exclusion in the Israeli security barrier cases with the American Japanese internment case Korematsu v. United States. In the context of constitutional law, the Israeli decisions are remarkably, almost defiantly, progressive.
