16 September 2008

by IIRE Fellow Éric Toussaint

25 June 2008

By IIRE Fellow Claudio Katz, June 2008.

Mid-February, IIRE will hold it Palestine Seminar, bringing together progressive activists from several Arab countries and Israel, as well as experts and activists dealing with the Middle East from Europe, North America and the Philippines.
