Perspectives #12 - 50 Year of Occupation, 50 Years of Resilience

pdf

This year marks 50 years of occupation – a significant period, not only for Palestinians living inside historical Palestine, but indeed first and foremost for them. Meanwhile 50 years have passed. Generations have grown up in Palestine without knowing freedom, stability, democratic participation and economic prosperity.

In this issue of Perspectives we provide a glimpse on life under occupation during these 50 years through a collection of articles, pictures, infographics, maps and a graphic novel.

What we want

For the past several decades, the Arab-Israeli conflict has been a major topic in international debates. 20 years after the Oslo process a solution seems further away than ever. Ongoing Israeli military occupation, Palestinian internal division, and international disorientation dominate the political agenda. Shifting regional power relations, the transformations in the Arab world, and the rise of Islamism add new layers to the already complicated political conflicts and social struggles.

In cooperation with its Palestinian and Jordanian partners hbs organises conferences, studies, debates, and expert meetings on national and regional levels, in order to analyse the underlying causes of the conflicts, anticipate future challenges, and provide policy advice. Furthermore, hbs organises visiting programs to contribute to the political and cultural dialogue between Germany, Europe, and the Middle East. hbs provides well researched and analysed information about policy options for decision makers on the Palestinian, Middle Eastern, German, and European level.
