Expected completion date: 2021-2022

Abstract:
My PhD research project centers around the Israeli carceral regime, and ways in which torture and violence practiced by the Israeli occupation have changed over the years, and the intended effect of imprisonment and torture. The research explores the Palestinian political imprisonment experience; how violence and torture has been practiced over the years; and ways in which prisons came to reflect the broader reality under which Palestinians continue to live, and the political effects of the occupation.
