Transforming Outlooks and Forms of Resistance: Palestinian Public Opinion Two Decades After the Oslo Accords

Wednesday, 15 February 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:20pm


What do Palestinians think about the peace process, their political realities, and about the world 20 years after the signing of the Oslo Accords? Professor Dana will highlight the results of a unique public opinion survey that he designed and implemented in the occupied Palestinian Territory of the West Bank in the summer of 2013, which corresponded with the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Oslo Accords. 


Dr. Karam Dana is a Palestinian-American academic. He is Assistant Professor of Middle East and Islamic Studies at the University of Washington Bothell. His research explores elite politics in Palestinian society in the 1920s and 1930s, and contemporary Palestinian public opinion. He also studies the political and civic engagement of Muslims in Western contexts, specifically in the United States.
