Abstract

Nearly a decade has passed since the International Court of Justice published its Construction of a Wall advisory opinion, advising that Israel settlements in the West Bank and the entire Israeli security barrier in the West Bank are unlawful. This working paper (originally submitted as a paper for a seminar given by Prof Malcolm Shaw on Human Rights and the Law of Territory) seeks to demonstrate why the Court advised incorrectly on these two points.

Keywords: Israel, West Bank, Occupation, Security barrier, Extraterritorial application of human rights, Settlements
