Speaker(s): Professor Joel Beinin
Chair: Dr John Chalcraft

Recorded on 4 November 2014 at Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building

Since 2002, local Palestinian popular committees have led a grass roots struggle against the separation barrier Israel has constructed, mostly on Palestinian land inside the West Bank. Israelis and internationals have joined this social movement. Using Doug McAdam’s conception of “high-risk activism” (derived from his study of the Mississippi Freedom Summer Project of 1964) Professor Joel Beinin will explore the history of the struggle and the motivations of Israelis for participating in it.
