Abstract

This paper seeks to accomplish four major objectives. First, it establishes an understanding of what administrative detention is and reviews the legal justification under Israeli law. Second, it aims to paint a picture of what actually happens to administrative detainees by looking at conditions of their imprisonment. Third, it reviews the relevant international laws, shows where gaps exists, and considers how the international community responds to the Government of Israel regarding the use of administrative detention. Fourth, the paper provides alternative ways of thinking about perpetrators of administrative detention and counter-normative means to enhance international influence.
