Russell Tribunal on Palestine (RToP)

The Russell Tribunal on Palestine (RtoP) is an International People’s Tribunal created following the international community's inaction regarding Israel’s violations of international law. The RToP stems from a long history of popular tribunals that first started in 1966 with the establishment, by Lord Bertrand Russell and French Philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, of the Russell Tribunal on Vietnam, investigating and evaluating U.S foreign policy and military intervention in Vietnam.

The RToP proceedings, which comprise a number of sessions, deal with different aspects of the complicity and responsibilities of states, international organizations and corporations in the ongoing occupation of Palestinian territories.The tribunal is also interested in empowering civil society and reinforcing the work of already existing campaign with legal tools.
