The Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies and the Institute for Palestine Studies are extending the deadline to register to attend the second round of the Annual Palestine Forum, without submitting a paper, until 13 January 2024, in response to multiple requests to extend the period open to register. The Annual Palestine Forum, organized by the two institutions, will be held in 10 – 12 February 2024.

The first round of the Palestine Forum, held in late January 2023 in Doha, was a huge success, both in terms of the quality of the papers presented and the volume of participation and interaction from attendees from all over the world. Currently, the forum committees are undergoing the peer-review process of over 200 research papers, selected from the submission of 520 research proposals.

The Annual Palestine Forum represents an unparalleled opportunity for researchers and those interested in Palestine to present and discuss their work, exposing each other to new research trends for Palestine studies, and fostering an interactive academic environment.

Moreover, the Forum invites researchers and those interested in studies on Palestine but who do not wish to submit research papers to benefit from the presentations and discussions by registering to attend. Registration to attend without submitting a research paper is open until 13 January 2024.
