About the Palestine Page

Since its launch in 2010, Jadaliyya has published many incisive pieces on Palestine and Palestinians across a broad disciplinary spectrum. To date, those works have been featured on the Occupation, Intervention, Law (O.I.L.) page. Now Palestine has its own page (and OIL is being revamped a Law and Conflict page). This change allows Palestine to command the distinctive attention that it deserves, and the concentration of articles and other materials on this new page will make it easier for our readers to find what they are looking for when they go to the Jadaliyya home page. Welcome to the Palestine Page!
