Lori Allen’s project offers a major reconsideration of international politics by analyzing Palestinian engagement with a rarely studied global governance technology: the investigative commission. Based on ethnographic interviews and archival research, the project analyzes six commissions convened in Palestine over the past century and shows how they have functioned as a liberal colonial device—one that operates on a pretense of consultation.
