Lecture: Jerusalem: A Many-Bordered City

4th February, 2020 @ 17:00 - 19:00

K C Shasha Conference Suite

Overview

This lecture, given by Prof. Michael Dumper (University of Exeter), with a response by Dr Ed Kessler, examines the dynamic nature of the borders of the city of Jerusalem and how they may impact on the nature of a political agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians.

Reference will also be made to other cities with ethnic and religious divisions (eg Banaras, Lhasa, George Town) with a view to situating Jerusalem in a broader political context.

Finally, Prof. Dumper will explore how the different historical, religious, legal and economic dimensions of the city connect and provide the basis for differing political claims and whether the 'many-bordered city' offers some flexibility in a negotiated agreement.
