(p.1) Introduction
Courting Conflict

Lisa Hajjar

University of California Press

The Israeli military court system is the central subject of this book. It is also a sociological inquiry into law and conflict in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza, an area that is referred to collectively as “Israel/Palestine.” This chapter tries to describe the contents and contours of the debates and to connect these debates both to the workings of the military court system and to the politics of the conflict. It also explores the military court system to see how law is enforced and what is done or not done in the name of the law. Part One of this book provides a general overview of the empirical context and the theoretical issues that inform this study. Part Two offers a sociolegal ethnography of the military court system.

Keywords:   Israeli military court system, Israel, West Bank, Gaza, politics, law, sociolegal ethnography, conflict
