The other book, published in English, addresses the marginalization of the Gaza Strip at a variety of levels, including that of Palestinian decision making. It contains selected proceedings from last year’s IALIIS conference, “Gaza-Palestine: Out of the Margins”. Included among the contributions is the keynote address by UNRWA’s commissioner General, Mr. Filippo Grandi, concerning the challenges of development in the Gaza Strip. There are also contributions by a number of specialists from different parts of the world including Dr. Sara Roy (Harvard University), Dr. Helga Tawil-Souri (New York University), Youssef Courbage (French National Institute of Demography), Maha Samman Mansour (Exeter University), Clemens Messerschmid (independent researcher), Julie Peteet (University of Louisville, Kentucky) and Dr. Asem Khalil (Birzeit University).

The publication of these two books was generously sponsored by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Canada in its concern for issues regarding Palestinian refugees, in an international and comparative perspective, and promoting academic publications in the field. IDRC likewise supports the production of policy studies likely to influence decision makers on issues regarding Palestinian refugees
