Revisiting Indigenous Histories, Legal Systems and Land Rights

Within the framework of exhibition Ground Truth: Testimonies of Destruction and Return in Al-Araqib, CPS is holding a scholarly panel to expand the discourse on the origins of the dispossession, expulsion, and displacement of the Palestinian Bedouins in the Negev/Al-Naqab, and in particular its historical background and legal aspects. The panelists are scholars and activists involved in historical research, legal geography, and human rights with the aim of situating the case of the Naqab Bedouins within key international debates, such as the territorial dispossession of indigenous peoples, indivisibility, and interrelationship of socioeconomic, cultural, civil, and political rights.

Panelists:
Nadia Ben-Youssef, Adalah Justice Project
Bashir Abu-Manneh, Director of the Centre for Postcolonial Studies, Kent University
Debby Farber, Zochrot

With:
Moderator: Nadia Abu El-Haj, Co-Director, Center for Palestine Studies
Respondent: Audra Simpson, Department of Anthropology, Columbia University
Chair: Brian Boyd, Co-Director, Center for Palestine Studies
