Description

An in-depth exploration of internal Palestinian politics and conflicts: How does life under the Palestinian Authority and Hamas affect the Palestinian people? Is there hope for a solution to the Israeli – Palestinian conflict? What is the impact of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement on the Palestinian people.



Bassem Eid is a Jerusalem-based political analyst, human rights pioneer and expert commentator in Arab and Palestinian affairs. Eid was born in the Jordanian-occupied Old City in East Jerusalem, whose place of residence became the United Nations Refugee Works Agency (UNRWA) refugee camp of Shuafat. He spent the first 33 years of his life in Shuafat. He rose to prominence during the first Intifada, the Palestinian uprising and was a senior field researcher for B’Tselem, the Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories. In 1996, he founded the Jerusalem-based Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group. In 2016, Eid assumed the role of chairman of the Center for Near East Policy Research.
