New IPCC Publication on the Old City in Jerusalem
IPCC has published a new report entitled “Jerusalem The Old City: Urban Fabric and Geopolitical Implications”. The report is IPCC’s 17th volume on Jerusalem, supported by the Freidrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), and is the first to center in detail on the Old City. Sovereignty and control of the Old City is one of the main issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The study examines the state of the Old City and explores possible geopolitical scenarios for its future, including functional urban and spatial implications of each scenario. Ultimately, the study identifies the most feasible intervention to avoid an escalation of hostilities. The best case scenario features Israeli and Palestinian cooperation and integration under an international regime.
New IPCC Survey on the Impact of the Separation Wall
A statistical booklet has been published by IPCC entitled “Jerusalem Wall: A decade of Division and Urban Incarceration – A Survey on the Impact of the Separation Wall on Jerusalem”. The construction of the wall around and through East Jerusalem has altered the physical and psychological make-up of the city and its inhabitants. IPCC has conducted surveys on the perceptions of the wall amongst Palestinian Jerusalemites, and this booklet summarizes the primary findings. The results contribute to a better understanding of how separation affects memories, perceptions and behaviors of those affected. They also help us to develop policies that will improve the living conditions of those Palestinians experiencing separation and/or displacement.
