Palestinian Lost Commons

Palestinian Lost Commons: Lessons in Countering Colonialism, a seminar with Dr. Ramez Eid, will highlight the participatory system of land management and ownership and its role in structuring relationships within Palestinian society, refuting the Orientalist and colonialist claims that describe this system as backward. The lecture will also focus on the historical, social, and economic role of the commons (Mesha’) system under the British Mandate and the Nakba. The Palestinian Museum.
