A short course on the Israeli – Palestinian conflict
While growing regional inequalities, the overreaching power of corporates as well as globalisation of wars point to the necessity of global solidarities, building transnational solidarity movements is proving to be a daunting task. Despite the existence of more efficient means of connecting people throughout the world, it has been difficult to build powerful and sustained international coalitions similar to anti-slavery, anti-war and anti-apartheid movements of yesteryear.
To investigate why this is the case and what can be done to overcome these challenges, Tshisimani is launching a programme to look at politics and methods to build common-interest struggles across borders. The investigation on politics and modalities of international solidarity will focus on what appears to be an intractable conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. It will use the struggle of Palestinian people for statehood and self-determination to ask questions about how to build global solidarity today. To launch the programme, a short course on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict takes place on Friday 02 – Saturday 03 June.
