Join Center for Constructional Rights Board Chair, Katherine Franke and Staff Attorney, Diala Shamas for a conversation with Noura Erakat on her new book, Justice for Some, Law and the Question of Palestine,.

Focusing on key junctures—from the Balfour Declaration in 1917 to present-day wars in Gaza—Noura Erakat shows how the strategic deployment of law has shaped current conditions. Over the past century, the law has done more to advance Israel's interests than the Palestinians'. But, Erakat argues, this outcome was never inevitable.
