Responsibility and vaccine nationalism in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Zohar Lederman, Ghada Majadli, Shmuel Lederman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this article we articulate a case from moral responsibility to assist Palestinians living in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). We contextualize this responsibility by focusing on access to healthcare and the provision of vaccines against COVID-19. We specifically present two arguments from responsibility, one that is global or cosmopolitan, and one that is country-specific. For the latter, we focus on Israel.
