The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
1.0 Credit

This course addresses the historical background to one of the most critical issues in international relations today. For more than half a century this conflict has had an impact not only on the Middle East but on the wider world as well. Indeed, at no point has the conflict been an isolated, local issue: at various times it has involved European – particularly British – governments, the world’s superpowers during the Cold War, and well as other regional – particularly Arab – states. {IR/G}
