Event description

Description

A conference assessing past legacies, present accountability, and future visions.

2017 marks the 50-year anniversary of the Six-day war which ushered in the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza (the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 had already claimed 80% of historic Palestine), as well as the centenary of the Balfour Declaration in which the UK declared its support for “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” laying the foundations for the present political geography in the region and enduring conflict.

This one-day conference will assess the research gaps on the Israel-Palestine conflict at this time in history, explore the future of the West Bank caught between a military occupation and a ‘civilised’ annexation (supported by the new US administration), and identify interdisciplinary synergies to fill those gaps. The conference aims to revisit key themes of the Israeli-Palestinian context in light of various disciplines, uncovering overlooked issues that remain under-explored and under-theorised.
