“Peace cannot be achieved through violence; it can only be attained through understanding” (Ralph Waldo Emerson). The Israel-Palestine conflict is arguably the world’s most contentious, talked about and longest running conflict. Although it is considered to be a conflict between two movements that are fighting for their right of self-determination and claim that this territory belongs to them, at its core, it is way more complex and deep than it appears to be. Both sides and their sympathizers have some historical incidents and factual details on their sides to prove their point. The primary goal of this course is to introduce students to the historical background and nature of the conflict between Israel and Palestine. It is an effort to present both viewpoints with the help of scholarly arguments and discuss them in greater detail.  The course focuses on the historical occurrences through targeted readings, analyzing different worldviews and dissecting the proposed solutions presented by various scholars and think tanks. With the help of independent research and academic discussion within the group to encourage critical thinking, this course will develop the skills among the students that will help them to conduct scholarly research, understand its technicalities and communicate intellectual ideas with empathy, clarity and respect. A second goal of the course is to promote the idea that peace can be achieved with the help of non-violence and negotiations. 


Course Outcomes

 

Students who successfully complete this course will be able to do the following:
