Speaker(s): Dr Tilde Rosmer
Recorded on 1 June 2011 in Thai Theatre, New Academic Building.
This lecture examines the role of Palestinians citizens of Israel in Israeli politics and their place in a conflict in which they are often caught between the state of their citizenship and the nationality of their people. In addition to looking at tensions between these non-Jewish citizens and the Jewish state and Jewish Israelis, the lecture will examine tensions within this group of Palestinians.
