Writing Palestine: A Roundtable

Again, Palestine has moved to the centre stage of international politics – Israel engaging in periodic rounds of bombing in Gaza, the United States announcing that it will now consider Israeli settlements on the West Bank as not in violation of International Law. Yet most major political parties ignore or bypass these issues – or worse, take measures to create a chilly climate around even raising a discussion of the rights of the Palestinians. This roundtable brings together authors whose books are part of the necessary work to challenge this silencing. The authors will reflect on some of the lessons and challenges they have experienced in “Writing Palestine” and discuss the core arguments of their books.
