COURSE OUTLINE

  • The conflict begins – Palestine during the British Mandate: The early days of the conflict were critical in its formation and trajectory. In the current political debate people often refer to events from that period to support their argument. In this session will revisit these events and analyse their impact on today’s reality.
  • Independence or Nakba – The 1948 war: The 1948 war was the watershed moment of the conflict. In this session we will go in details to the events of the war examined from different narratives and perspectives. We will examine the consequences of the war and ask what could have been done differently.
  • Who is David and Who is Goliath? - The Arab-Israeli Wars: The 1950s, 60s and 70s have seen the development of the conflict into a series of large-scale wars between Israel and the Arab countries. This period ended with the signing of a peace agreement between Israel and Egypt. What were the consequences of those wars and how was this first peace agreement achieved?
