    • Abstract:
      Occupation is both a legal and an affective category, at once a regime of power and a structure of feeling that shapes the logics of rule while transforming space, place, nations, and communities. Judicial institutions operating under conditions of occupation, including both military and civilian court systems, contribute to the maintenance of state power by providing venues for individuals to seek redress for state harms while ultimately ensuring the operationalization of impunity for state perpetrators, the criminalization of dissent, and the legalization of the state's apparatus of control ([23]; [24]; [35], 2019; [38]). Palestinian feminist scholar Nadera [64] analyzes Israel's security policy through the lens of settler colonialism, demonstrating how Israel's biopolitical governance, shaped by a "security theology" that operates through surveillance technologies and a "political economy of fear", informs the most intimate contours of life and death in the settler colony. Even as Israel attempts to control Palestinians "through death", the kin of Palestinian martyrs who demand the return of the dead bodies uphold I karameh i , or the dignity of their dead, to resist the necropolitical violence of the Israeli state.
