This course introduces students to the study of the Arab-Israeli conflict, from its initial stages starting from the first waves of Zionist immigration to Palestine through the 1948 war and the establishment of the state of Israel. It will focus on the emerging features of the conflict, the struggle between the Palestinian Arab and Jewish Nationalist movements, and the regional and international involvement in these events.
Taking a multidisciplinary approach, this course examines the field of forced migration, focusing in particular on psychosocial and mental health issues. Moving from a global perspective to the “here-and-now”, we will explore the specific case of the African asylum seekers in Israel, analyzing their conditions and discussing possible solutions and interventions. The course will also include virtual meetings with activists and other professionals working in southern Tel Aviv.
