Settlements and the Occupation: An Israeli Legal Perspective

Mr. Sfard is Israel's pre-eminent legal expert on settlements and the challenges posed by the broader infrastructure of Israeli occupation to the daily life of Palestinians, to the two-state solution, to American policy and to Israel's democracy. Specializing in international human rights and humanitarian law, as well as the military laws by which Israel rules the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, Mr. Sfard is Israel's most respected human rights lawyer. He is the legal counsel of the human rights organization Yesh Din, and the lawyer for Peace Now's Settlement Watch project. Mr. Sfard frequently appears in front of Israel's Supreme Court, including petitions concerning Israel's West Bank Barrier, land expropriations, and is leading legal efforts to compel Israel to evacuate illegal settlement outposts. He co-authored the book The Wall of Folly, a detailed account of the economic and human costs associated with Israel's construction of the separation barrier. Mr Sfard's visit is being supported by the Carter Center.
