Product description


Deals with Higher education in Palestine under military occupation.

From the Publisher

Education Under Occupation examines the development of Palestinian higher
education and relates the experiences of students, staff and teachers under
Israeli occupation.

In 2002, Israel's invasion and subsequent military occupation of the
Palestinian Territories destroyed, in systematic fashion, the social,
economic and political infrastructure of an emerging Palestinian state.
Unilateral initiatives heralding disengagement notwithstanding, that
occupation continues today, its physical and administrative barriers
increasingly intrusive, as the promise of Palestinian self-determination is
progressively undermined by interminable diplomatic deadlock.

The book records the daily reality of life at Palestinian universities,
drawing on sources amongst others from the detailed archives of Birzeit
University, near Ramallah, in the West Bank. It provides a concise and
methodical testimony of how Palestinians, confronted with a blanket siege
of their institutions, must cope with perpetual challenges to maintain
standards of higher and further education.

The main author, Nick King, visited the West Bank in 2002-2003 to interview
educators and staff of Palestinian universities and here relays oral
testimony of the struggle to fulfil the promise of university education in
defiance of disruptive military interventions. This critical analysis of
the higher education sector contextualises the current difficulties faced
by policy-makers, professors and students alike, while recalling the
ongoing debate surrounding initiatives for an academic boycott of formal
relations with the occupying power.
