08/11/2014 - 09/11/2014
9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Al-Jazeera Centre for Studies (AJCS) and the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) will be hosting a joint conference in London. The International Conference on the Impact of the WWI on Palestine will take place on the 8th and 9th of November 2014.
The conference will examine the impact of the WWI on Palestine with special interests on the role of the Ottoman Empire and the Zionist Movement. It will examine the political position of the Palestinians and the Arabs in general following the Sykes-Picot Agreement. It will also discuss in-depth the British Mandate and the San Remo Conference.
The conference will also discuss the emergence of a national Palestinian movement in the 1930’s. Last but not least, the conference will address the effects of the laissez faire attitude of the international community towards Israel after the end of the WWII. Many believe it was this attitude that galvanised the Zionist movement and its subsequent impunity towards the Palestine.
Speakers and sessions to be announced later on.
