The article considers the legal and practical implications of the Wall mitigation efforts in the West Bank. The International Court of Justice found that the Separation Wall built by the Israeli government in the West Bank violates international human rights and international humanitarian law. It called for the immediate cessation and dismantling of the Wall. Meanwhile, many donor and humanitarian aid agencies are facing legal and practical challenges in implementing their Wall mitigation projects.
