This thesis explores the relationship between building materials corporations, specifically HeidelbergCement, and the state of Israel. The cooperation between capitalist corporations and a settler-colonial state is analyzed not just as a symbiotic relationship, but also as a site where the paradoxes and flawed logic of the occupation of Palestine can be exposed. The second half of the paper focuses on how organizations and individuals have used legal challenges to HeidelbergCement and Israel as mechanisms for social change beyond impact litigation alone.
