The Arab-Israeli Conflict has remained one of the most complex issues in global politics and international relations for decades. This unit will examine the history of this conflict, from the beginning of Jewish nationalism to the present time. Combining a chronological and thematic approach, we will examine the birth of the state of Israel and the ensuing Palestinian refugee movement, the various wars between Israel and its neighbours, the rise of Palestinian nationalism and militancy, the peace process, and options for the future.
