We are delighted to announce the release of this important and timely book, due to be published on 15 September 2020 in print and online. The book grew out of a one-day conference hosted in 2019 at the British Library in London, organised by the Palestinian Return Centre with the collaboration of the Al Jazeera Center for Studies and the European Center for Palestine Studies at the University of Exeter.
The exile of Palestinian refugees remains at the heart of the Palestinian struggle for justice and liberation. UNRWA at 70 engages the themes surrounding this UN Agency and Palestinians beyond the logics of humanitarianism. The book brings together scholars from Palestine and Israel, Lebanon, Qatar, the UK, Canada and elsewhere, who specialise in the fields of politics, history, sociology and law, and are renowned for producing critical research on the Arab region and in particular on the forced displacement of Palestinians. This project follows previous co-published books by the Palestinian Return Centre and the Al Jazeera Center for Studies, which include World War I Impact on Palestine: A Hundred Year legacy (2016) and Palestinian Refugees in the Arab World: Realities & Prospects (2015).
