[Dublin] The History and Roots of the Israel Palestine Conflict (Open Learning Ireland)
The History and Roots of the Israel Palestine Conflict 11am – Friday 1st March, 12.30pm, Seomra Spraoi
This session will introduce participants to the land, culture, economics and geography of Palestine and Israel before going on to outline the two narratives underpinning the Conflict.
This session aims to introduce participants to the reality that the region is more than the Conflict while at the same time introducing some key perspectives that will enable understanding for the people on either side.
