During the 4th Annual UN Forum on Business and Human Rights

lt has become increasingly clear that profits play a large role in maintaining the lsraeli occupation of the Palestinian West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and the Gaza Strip.
Al- Haq, Badil, Article 1 Collective, Who Profits, and the Boycott National Committee invite you to a panel discussion that will examine corporate complicity in the systematic lsraeli violations of international humanitarian and human rig hts law.
Panelists will discuss the nexus between business interests and the lsraeli occupation regime, which together  annex and exploit the resources of the Occupied Palestinien Territory and oppress the Palestinien population for their mutuel benefit.
A short question and answer period will follow.

Panelists:

Susan Power, Legal Research Fellow, Al- Haq

Hadeel Badarni, Research Coordinator, Who Profits

Ingrid Jaradat, Consultant, Boycott National Committee and Palestinian Farmers Union

Rania Madi, United Nations Legal Advocacy Representative, Badil

John Veron, Founder and Board Member, Article l Collective
