We were invited by Al Haq and Heinrich Böll Foundation to the West Bank to investigate environmental problems affecting Palestinians, which are attributable to Israel's occupation of the territories of the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and Gaza Strip. 'Environmental Justice' was the rubric within which we were requested to operate and to report. This is the report based on our visit. It documents a variety of demonstrable obstacles to environmental justice across the widest conceivable spectrum of circumstances. We examine relevant formal law and also, crucially, practical issues of law enforcement. We pay particular attention to remedies for the vindication of rights available within transnational and international fora. The reason for this is the existence of insurmountable barriers to justice within the 'domestic' legal system, from which almost the entirety of the problem of environmental justice stems.
