Palestinian Identity and Agriculture: Gaza as a case study

4:00 pm
17 July 2023

This webinar will provide an insight into the evolution of the Palestinian people’s relationship with land, agriculture, and environment in Gaza through a historical lens. It will explore how the Israeli regime’s exploitative policies, from cheap Palestinian agricultural resources, to the exhaustion of Gaza’s natural resources and the utilisation of trade and export to reinforce a higher dependency on Israeli companies distorts the Palestinian people’s relationship with their land. The talk will also reflect on futuristic envisioning of Gaza’s agriculture considering these realities.

This event will take place on Monday, 17 July 2023, at 6pm (Gaza) time, 4pm in the UK.

The event will also be made available on CBRL’s YouTube channel.
