About this course

This course was updated in November 2023.

Palestine, the small region in the Middle East comprising theoretically of the Gaza strip and the West Bank, has been marked by frequent conflict and land seizures for years.

This course looks at the socio-political history of the region and the interventions of United Nations agencies. It considers Article 1D of the Refugee Convention, known as one of the ‘exclusion’ clauses, and the effect this has on Palestinians applying for protection in the UK.
