Cognizant of the Palestine Studies Trust adjacent to the University of Exeter initiated by Dr Uri Davis in the early 1980s, Professor Ilan Pappé and Dr Ghada Karmi founded the European Centre for Palestinian Studies (ECPS) in 2009. It is dedicated to producing interdisciplinary on the history of Palestine and the Palestine/Israel conflict.
ECPS draws upon the expertise of a distinguished group of scholars in Middle Eastern Studies, both from IAIS and from three of Exeter’s departments: Politics, History and Economics.
Our faculty has already produced important work on Palestine, with book-length studies.
Our immediate aim is to establish a scholarship fund. The aim is to allow the brightest students from around the world to study at ECPS.
