Apartheid Library

The contents of the library are categorized according to the definition of apartheid in article II of the Apartheid Convention, the ‘inhuman acts’ in article II, and the international responsibility outlined in articles III and IV. The first section houses literature examining the foundations of apartheid – its institutionalization and intentionality, the second is looking at the international responsibility, and new visions post-apartheid. While the remaining 9 sections are the primary ‘inhuman acts’ used by the Israeli regime today; other ‘inhuman acts’ exist.
