First Global Conference on Israeli Apartheid: Dimensions, Repercussions and the Means to Combat – Istanbul, Turkey
“The policies and practices used by Israel to exercise control over the Palestinian people constitute apartheid under international criminal law. Perceiving the conflict through the prism of occupation rather than apartheid blocks all efforts to achieve a sustainable and just peace while giving Israel time needed to turn the occupation into a full-fledged annexation.”
Richard Falk is a member of the TRANSCEND Network, an international relations scholar, professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University, Distinguished Research Fellow, Orfalea Center of Global Studies, UCSB, author, co-author or editor of 60 books, and a speaker and activist on world affairs. In 2008, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) appointed Falk to two three-year terms as a United Nations Special Rapporteur on “the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.” Since 2002 he has lived in Santa Barbara, California, and associated with the local campus of the University of California, and for several years chaired the Board of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. His most recent book is On Nuclear Weapons, Denuclearization, Demilitarization, and Disarmament (2019).
