As an outspoken critic of the policies of Israel in relation to Palestinians, Dugard has stated, “I’m a South African who lived through apartheid and I have no hesitation in saying that Israel’s crimes are infinitely worse than those committed by the apartheid regime of South Africa.”

He has written several books on apartheid, human rights, and international law and coauthored textbooks on criminal law and procedure and international law.
