Event Title

A History of Partition: the Gordian Knot of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Streaming Media

Description

"Over the last 120 years the evolving Palestinian–Israeli conflict has had many facets, but none has been as pressing and tangible as the problem of sharing the land. This presentation focuses squarely on the constant but evolving challenge of partitioning a relatively small but geographically varied strip of land sitting between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. Organised chronologically, it reflects on the failure of successive attempts to establish separate independent states that can satisfy the claims of both Jewish and Palestinian nationalism to the same territorial space."
