Israel and the Occupied Territories - Surviving under siege: The impact of movement restrictions on the right to work
Reports | Report | 08.09.2003
This report analyses the impact of movement restrictions on the right to work of Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. It details the findings of Amnesty International's research and describes representative cases in different areas of the West Bank and Gaza. The report contends that the widespread and prolonged closures, curfews and other restrictions on movement currently imposed cannot be justified on security grounds, and discriminate against Palestinians, and are often used as a form of collective punishment in reprisal for attacks committed by Palestinian armed groups.
