Inaugural Event

The opening on 7 October 2010 of the Center for Palestine Studies was an important moment for Columbia University as well as for the wider academic community interested in the study of Palestine and Palestinians. Co-Director Rashid Khalidi's initial words, "I hereby announce the opening of the Center for Palestine Studies at Columbia University," were greeted with enthusiastic clapping and cheers from the over 350 in attendance.
