MES 12.09 Politics of Israel and Palestine

This course explores the century-old conflict as seen from the political structures and changing narratives of Israelis and Palestinians, including the Zionist movement and the responses of the Palestinian Arab community to it; the formation of the Arab national movement as a whole—and within this, the claims of Palestinians before and after the British Mandate; the founding of the state of Israel and the formation of the post-1948 Palestinian national movement; the aftermath of the 1967 war; the start of the Israeli occupation and the latter’s impact on Israeli institutions, economy, and political parties;  and the Palestine Liberation Organization and the founding of Hamas. We will explore contemporary political and economic developments in light of the global forces operating on the region, and consider the plausibility of a two-state solution.
