Part of the RSC Public Seminar Series, Hilary term 2024
Series convened by Dr Catherine Briddick
Refugee History, Human Rights and the Occupied Palestinian Territory
Convenor: Dr Catherine Briddick
This research-led seminar mini-series provides an opportunity to engage with current events in Israel and Gaza. Our speakers are scholars whose expertise and research illuminates issues relevant to the conflict. With them, we are able to discuss how displacement has shaped the history of Gaza and to explore the relationships between international humanitarian, refugee, and human rights law.
Consonant with the RSC’s commitment to build knowledge and understanding of the causes and effects of forced migration, this series aims to encourage reflection and contribute to debate in academia and in practice.
‘there is no justification for studying, and attempting to understand, the causes of human suffering if the purpose of one’s study is not, ultimately, to find ways of relieving and preventing that suffering.’ Dr David Turton
