Palestine Studies Fellow Mouin Rabbani
The Institute for Palestine Studies (IPS) is honored to announce that two of its longtime scholars, Rashid Khalidi and Salim Tamari, have recently received awards from the World Congress for Middle Eastern Studies (WOCMES) and the State of Palestine, respectively.
At this year's annual conference, the Institute for Palestine Studies will examine the situation of the Jordan Valley and Area C across four themes that, together, look at the background of the area, the impact of the settlements, the political and legal strategies and activism, as well as popular support in the context of development. Paper proposals should be submitted no later than May, 28, 2018.
Seventy years on, Palestinians in Jerusalem continue to endure systematic attempts to force them out of their homes, while in the West Bank they struggle to remain in their ancestral homeland amid an ever-expanding settler-colonial project. In Gaza, where Palestinians are imprisoned en masse, they suffer the consequences of repeated military assaults and an ongoing siege, now in its 14th year. At this critical time, we remain committed to protecting the facts on Palestine and hope that you will find these publications illuminating.

For our July Book of the Month, Palestine Studies has chosen Manifestations of Identity: The Lived Reality of Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon by Muhammad Ali Khalidi. Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon are often discussed in sensationalist or objectified terms in the context of various crises.
On this day, 43 years ago, the Palestinian people lost one of their greatest writer, Ghassan Kanafani. In remembrance the Institute for Palestine Studies has made available an archival retrospective on the life and work of Kanafani.
