Gerald M Steinberg

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Contends that ostensibly independent NGOs are, in fact, far from neutral on many political issues, including the Middle East conflict. Powerful NGOs claiming to promote human rights and humanitarian aid contribute significantly to campaigns to label and isolate Israel as a pariah, "racist" state. This was manifest at the NGO forum of the 2001 Durban Conference, which took on an antisemitic character.
