Hbs gladly announces the new edition “We Are Still Watching You” of our long-standing partner Institute for Jerusalem Studies (Institute for Palestine Studies), which is accessible online now.
The IJS is the oldest institute in the world researching and publicizing on Palestinian affairs and the Arab-Israeli conflict. Established in 1963 in Beirut as an independent, non-profit Arab institute it is regarded as the major source of accurate information on Palestinian affairs throughout the Arab world. It provides comprehensive material of current regional affairs with an emphasis on peaceful conflict resolution.
The Jerusalem Quarterly is the only journal that focuses exclusively on the city of Jerusalem’s history, political status, and future. It addresses debates about the city and its predicament, as well as future scenarios for solving the problems of Jerusalem. Sponsored by the hbs, the new issue examines the intelligence and security regimes that have monitored Palestinian lives over the last century. It addresses the continuities and developments of information collection in the pursuit of political control. The historical approach ranges from the World War One Jewish spy network NILI to current roundtable discussions exploring new strategies of resistance to the occupation.
