PROJECT ISRAEL-PALESTINE.  (PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES) For University of Seville International Cooperation Office - Project page

The aim was to cover the development of the activities of the scholarship students of the University of Seville in Palestine. First, we document their attendance at the Right to Education International Student Summer Conference, 2010, held at Birzeit University. In this event, students were grouped in thematic working groups and established direct contact with the sociopolitical situation in various parts of the Palestinian territories, and representatives of various institutions both Palestinian and foreign. During these days, they had the opportunity to visit the International Academy of Art Palestine, based in Ramallah. There, they met their facilities, attended a meeting with its artistic director, Khaled Hourami, and its Director of Administration and Finance, Samia Shannan; likewise, they witnessed the signing of a cooperation agreement between this institution and the University of Seville, through the representation of Prof.. Dra. Dña. María José Lera. Likewise, students conducted a visit to the Palestinian city of Qalqilya, where they could check the isolation and economic strangulation caused by the construction of the separation wall with Israel, which completely surrounds this enclave.
