critical Israelis in the Netherlands



The Dutch expert report is available in English

July 2, 2015

In April 2014 a Dutch multidisciplinary expert group published the original (Dutch language) version of its report ‘Palestinian Children and Military Detention’. The report was presented on the 17th of April 2014 at the foreign affairs committee of the Dutch parliament. This report addresses the practices and consequences of arrest, interrogation, detention and trial of Palestinian children by the Israeli military authorities, from a multidisciplinary perspective. In the conclusions of the report, the expert group expressed its great concern about the violations of the rights of the children involved that many of these practices amount to, and about the negative impact of these practices and violations on the well-being of Palestinian children, families and communities. The report is the outcome of a visit to Israel Palestine that was organized in November 2013 by gate48 and Palestine Link.
