Manuel Reinert, IFRA-Nigeria Research Associate, gave a lecture on the second Intifada and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the History and International Studies Department, University of Ilorin, on May 30. Manuel Reinert was invited by Dr. Ibrahim Jawondo to deliver this lecture to the post-graduate students of the department with the support of the HOD, Dr. Peter F. Adebayo, who attended the event. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a major issue in international studies and a well discussed subject in Nigerian universities. The goal was to deepen knowledge and trigger discussion on questions such as Zionism, Israeli identity, Palestinian nationalism, the peace process, the US involvement, the role of Arab countries, etc., and explore the period of the second Intifada, one of the tipping points of the conflict.
