On Saturday, 10 February 2024, the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies and the Institute for Palestine Studies will launch their Second the Annual Palestine Forum at the Sheraton Hotel in Doha. The event will run for three days, closing on 12 February.

The Forum represents the world’s most prominent academic event dedicated to the Palestinian cause. The academic quality of papers presented and the diversity of the research approaches and the participants from across the globe. The papers presented include a wide-ranging selection of topics related to Palestine, touching on history, international relations, the settler colonial and apartheid systems, and the matter of national liberation. The Forum has thus become a significant treasury of academic research on Palestine, attracting a diverse audience of those interested in the regional and global dimensions of the subject. It constitutes a unique meeting point to exchange knowledge and insights on related issues.

This year, approximately 70 peer-reviewed academic papers will be presented, selected from among 520 applications, in specialized sessions in four parallel tracks, in addition to a number of symposia. Given that this year’s meeting is being held at a critical juncture in the history of the Palestinian question, the symposia topics have been dedicated to addressing the various dimensions of the ongoing Israeli war on the Gaza Strip and the challenges facing the Palestinian national project.
