“Available evidence establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that Israel is guilty of policies and practices that constitute the crime of apartheid as legally defined in instruments of international law” – ESCWA Report
by Professors Richard Falk & Virginia Tilley

About AARDi

AARDi is a non-governmental organization composed of human rights advocates, academics, and activists who firmly stand against apartheid and racial discrimination, and who believe that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is an issue of human rights. They also believe that dismantling the apartheid regime Israel has imposed on all Palestinians is a necessary precondition for reaching a true, just and durable peace.

AARDi is registered in Geneva, Switzerland as ‘the Global Organization against Racial Discrimination and Segregation’, and its work is guided by International conventions and declarations, in particular the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination, and the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid.
