Steve Zipperstein: Zionism, Palestinian Nationalism and the Law

Steve Zipperstein Returns for Another Illuminating Talk

Steve Zipperstein

Please join us virtually as Steve Zipperstein will discuss his new book, Zionism, Palestinian Nationalism and the Law.

As Zipperstein's  book recounts, during the last decade of the British Mandate for Palestine (1939-1948), Arabs and Jews used the law as a resource to gain leverage against each other and to influence international opinion. The parties invoked "transformational legal framing" to portray the essentially political-religious conflict as a legal dispute involving claims of justice, injustice and victimization, and giving rise to legal/equitable remedies.

Employing this form of narrative and framing in multiple "trials" during the first 15 years of the Mandate, the parties continued the practice during the last and most crucial decade of the Mandate.  Zipperstein's book analyzes the role of the law during the last years of the British Mandate for Palestine making an essential contribution to the framing  of the Arab Israeli Conflict.
