The newly published book, Unfree in Palestine, chronicles how millions of Palestinians have been denationalized through the bureaucratic tools of census, population registration, blacklisting and a discriminatory legal framework.  Based on extensive fieldwork, Unfree in Palestine reveals the role played by identity documents in Israel’s apartheid policies towards the Palestinians, from the red passes of the 1950s to the orange, green and blue passes of today.  Identity documents are used by Israel as a means of coercion, extortion, humiliation and informant recruitment. IDs and population registers threaten Palestinian livelihoods, freedom of movement and access to basic services such as health and education.
