In recent decades, an increasing number of works have been dedicated to the British legal system in Palestine during the Mandate and its legacy upon the emerging Israeli state. With the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza following the war of 1967, works have addressed the controversial role played by Israeli police in occupied Palestinian territories. A number of works have addressed the legal systems imposed on Palestinians, while others have used legal sources – including court records – to write social histories of Palestine and the Palestinians.
The aim of this network is to provide researchers with information about publications and congresses regarding the mediterranean area in modern and contemporary history. We strive to be a collaborative space for researchers coming from different research fields. Instead of only promoting discussions about each single country, or only discussing the concept of mediterranean history, the aim is to facilitate circulation and confrontation of ideas, methods, and theories.
