This ground-breaking paper draws on international law, conventions, treaties and declarations to argue that current international aid procedures violate Palestinian rights. I argue that Palestinians should claim their rights from donors and international development actors and take initiative to reform the aid system, which in some ways denies self-determination in ways similar to the Israeli occupation.
