This chapter discusses the role of corporations in human rights violations under Oslo. Oslo provided Israel with legal control over a majority of West Bank land and control over the passage of people and goods across borders, giving Israel greater freedom to build and expand the settlements in Area C, exploit its natural resources, and build the “separation wall” inside the West Bank. These activities have provided lucrative opportunities for corporate exploitation, and in most cases Israel could not conduct them without corporate assistance. The involvement of corporations in providing goods and services relating to Israel's occupation of the West Bank has been categorized by researchers into three areas: the settlement industry, exploitation of captive consumer and labor markets, and population control.

Keywords:   Palestine, Israel, Oslo Accords, human rights violations, peace process, Palestinians, private corporations, settlement industry, captive consumer market, population control
