Fifty Years of Occupation: A Forum

This week marks the fiftieth anniversary of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, which culminated in the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, and the Golan Heights, among other transformations of regional politics. The post-1967 occupation and its consequences continue to structure the mainstream conversation about resolving the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, and those between Israel and other Arab states, even as scholarship increasingly poses the occupation as part of a longer-term and more multi-faceted question of Palestine. We asked several specialists to reflect on the past, present, and future of the question of Palestine at this historical juncture.

Part one of the forum features contributions from Joel Beinin, Noura Erakat, Zachary Lockman, Maha Nassar, and Ilana Feldman.

Part two of the forum features contributions from Gershon Shafir, Omar Jabary Salamanca, Sobhi Samour, Mandy Turner, Andy Clarno, Kareem Rabie, and Lisa Bhungalia.

Part three of the forum features contributions from Sherene Seikaly, Neve Gordon, Lori Allen, Alaa Tartir, and Sara Roy.
