The concept of colonialism is increasingly prevalent in evaluating the structural and institutional problems of the Palestine-Israel conflict. Colonialism is utilized as an explanatory and critical framework to understanding and challenging the ideological, ethnic/racial, and political foundations of both the Zionist and Palestinian movements. The research poses as a qualitative case study to assess the legal and ideological foundations of apartheid in South Africa and Israel towards their native populations despite varying strategies in establishing exclusive settler-colonial states. This thesis characterizes apartheid as the modern legal manifestation of colonialism and explores the constraints of the internationally supported two-state solution.
