BNC submission to the International FFM on Israeli settlements in the OPT
In March 2012, the UN Human Rights Council adopted a resolution establishing a Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) with the mandate to examine and issue a report on how the illegal Israeli settlements impact on the human rights (all civil, political, social, economic and cultural rights, including the right to self-determination) of Palestinians. Israel boycotted and refused to cooperate with the proceedings preventing the entry of the FFM into the West Bank.
The FFM invited Palestinian victims and experts, including NGOs, to submit written submissions and oral testimonies in October 2012. The Palestinian BDS National Committee participated in the process and hereby publishes its submission to the FFM (in attachment).
