Despite Palestine’s endeavour to seek full UN membership and herewith gain the support of the international community, strong tendencies towards violating basic fair trial principles can be observed on the ground. This article provides an in-depth exploration of the current Rule of Law building efforts in the occupied Palestinian Territories by an exemplary analysis of the status of the right to defence. The study examines the legal situation of the right to defence in Palestine and how those regulations are interpreted and applied in everyday practice. Considering recent developments of access to legal defence and legal aid on the UN and EU level, this article demonstrates the importance of granting comprehensive access to defence as part of the rule of law building efforts, and also underlines the necessity of its application during the early stages of criminal procedure.
