Israel/Occupied Territories: Briefing to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD)
Amnesty International is submitting this Briefing Paper to the CERD ahead of its consideration of Israel's Periodic Reports. This briefing is not intended to comprehensively review all forms of racial discrimination in Israel and the Occupied Territories. Rather, it highlights some of the most egregious aspects of discrimination, in law and practice, which Amnesty International has researched and campaigned on in recent years. These include concerns at the systematic discrimination against Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and certain aspects of discrimination against the Arab minority and migrant workers in Israel.
