Human Rights & the Forgotten Histories of the Israeli/Palestinian Conflict.

This special issue of the Mediterranean Journal of Human Rights aims to explore the presence of human rights discourse and issues within various histories of the Israeli/Palestinian question. We hope in this way to participate in what can never be an exclusively academic search for new perspectives on this deeply disturbing conflict.
Israeli and Palestinian academics, human rights advocates, and journalists in this issue focus on the interface between history and human rights highlighting the moral and political implications of historiography, while also acknowledging that rights are never purely abstract principles but are created and invoked in specific historical contexts.
