AQB congratulates the excellent Urban Studies & Spatial Practices student, Mahmoud Salim, on passing the Senior Project Board Discussion for his research “The Challenges and Possibilities of Development from the People’s Point of View in Jubbet Ad-Dib.”
In his research, he studies the case of a Palestinian group in an isolated Palestinian village, and mainly focuses on two points: First, to articulate the difficulties and struggles of Palestinians living on their land in Area C. Second, to point out the possible capacity for “development” in an attempt to improve the living conditions of those who experience limitations and de-development under the Israeli occupation.
Al-Quds Bard College is proud of its students and their academic projects that grapple with everyday reality in Palestine.
