Co-sponsored by: Institute for Palestine Studies (http://www.palestine-studies.org/)

Hosted by: The Jerusalem Fund for Education and Community Development (http://www.thejerusalemfund.org/)

 
Latin America hosts the largest Palestinian presence outside the Arab world. Emigration began at the end of the 19th century and reached its peak between 1900 and 1930. Latin Americans of Palestinian descent claim today to be more than half a million but little to nothing has been written about them and their relationship with Palestine.
 
Cecilia Baeza will shed light on the unexplored story of this other "Palestinian diaspora". Children of a pre-Nakba emigration, predominantly Christian, middle-to-upper class citizens, and well-represented among political and business elites, Palestinians in Latin America do not easily fit into a national narrative shaped by the refugee experience.
 
Her talk will present the socio-economic trajectories of these emigrants and their descendants, explore the journey of their identity over generations, and analyze their relationship to the Palestinian cause according to periods and countries of settlement. She will discuss the shifting notion of "Palestinian diaspora" and its articulation with long-distance nationalism, homeland and return.
 
 
Cecilia Baeza is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of International Relations of the University of Brasilia (UnB). Between 2003 and 2009, she was associate professor at Sciences Po Paris, where she concluded her PhD in Political Science in 2010. Her dissertation focused on Palestinian immigrants and their descendants in Chile, Honduras and Brazil, and their relationship with Palestinian nationalism. She has worked on the redefinition of South American foreign policy regarding the Palestinian issue since the 2000s. She also analyzes the role of the Arab diasporas, through their mobilizations and networks of influence. Cecilia Baeza is cofounder of RIMAAL, a research network on Latin America and the Arab World. Among her recent publications are "América latina y la cuestión palestina (1947-2012)" (Araucaria, 2012) and "O reconhecimento do Estado palestino: origens e perspectivas" (Boletim Mediano, 2011). She is currently writing a book on the Palestinian diaspora in Latin America.
 
 
About the Institute: The Institute for Palestine Studies (IPS) is a nonprofit research institution unaffiliated with any political organization or government, highly regarded throughout the Arab world as a model of institutional organization and independence. Established in Beirut in 1963, it is the oldest institute in the world devoted exclusively to documentation, research, analysis, and publication on Palestinian affairs and the Arab-Israeli conflict.
 
The IPS supports the Institute for Palestine Studies (USA), Inc., in Washington, DC [a 501 (c)(3) public charity] and the Institute of Jerusalem Studies in Ramallah (West Bank).
