What does it mean for Palestinians to be held in Israeli jails without charge or trial? How does administrative detention effect the mental health of detainees and their families? Addameer Association explores this in a short video.
Addameer’s film “Life on Hold: The Policy of Administrative Detention,” tackles the issue of administrative detention, the Israeli government policy which holds Palestinians indefinitely on secret information without charge or trial. The film specifically focuses on the psychological effects of administrative detention on detainees and their families. This film was produced as part of Addameer’s global campaign to #StopAD.
