Political Rights Violations in the West Bank and Gaza by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas

In this report, the Jerusalem Institute of Justice (JIJ) examines political rights and freedoms in the West Bank and Gaza. Through comprehensive research and interviews with those living and working in the West Bank and Gaza, this report aims to illuminate the situation on the ground with regard to political rights for Palestinians in these territories. Freedom of Assembly is routinely violated throughout the West Bank and Gaza either by unlawful police interference in private assemblies, or disproportionate use of force in public assemblies. Freedom of Association is severely restricted, with the Ministry of Interior assuming control over the set-up, funding and dissolution of associations and charities. The Palestinian Authority and Hamas are making little effort to protect and promote these rights of the Palestinian people and are thus in violation of international law.
