On Thursday 14 May at 7.30pm, Peter Frankental, Amnesty's Economics Related Programme Director, gives a zoom talk about the question of whether companies can do business with Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories while respecting human rights.

Should companies steer clear of Israeli settlements in Occupied Palestinian Territory?

  • Is there clarity for companies on how they should make decisions regarding activities with entities based in Israeli settlements?
  • Would public bodies be justified in excluding such companies from public procurement?
  • What are the implications of the UN’s listing of companies 1 for their involvement in settlement activities contributing to human rights violations?

Amnesty International has published a report 2 on how online tourism companies promote accommodation and activities in the settlements to the detriment of Palestinians
