Britain’s Legacy in Palestine is an international conference organised by the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) to review British policy in Palestine from the Balfour declaration until the Nakba and beyond. Britain has left an indelible mark on Palestine and its catastrophic repercussions are still felt today. In enforcing the Balfour Declaration, Britain sold out Palestinian human rights, self determination and representative government to privilege the Zionist movement in Palestine which led to the 1948 Nakba and numerous massacres against the Palestinian people.
Academics, experts and senior politicians participated at the conference and delivered academic papers and speeches on the aspects of the British mandate policies. This book provides a documentation of the proceedings of the conference.
