Mentor: Dr. Anne Dotter

The aim of this research is to examine the relationship between and the efficacy of U.S. foreign policy and UN resolutions on Israeli settlements in the past five years. I use the lens of Nancy Fraser’s concept of abnormal justice to evaluate this. Data comes from newspaper articles on official federal statements, actual UN resolutions, and quantitative data on U.S. foreign aid and Israeli settlement expansions. The research furthers conversations on the best practices for peace building in the ongoing conflict of Israeli occupation of Palestine.
