Palestinian Lost Commons: Lessons in Countering Colonialism

This seminar will highlight the participatory system of land management and ownership and its role in structuring relationships within Palestinian society, refuting the orientalist and colonialist claims that describe this system as backward. The lecture will also focus on the historical, social and economic role of the commons (Mesha’) system under the British Mandate and the Nakba. 

Speaker: Dr. Ramez Eid
