The Center for Palestine Studies (CPS) at Columbia is proud to launch, in conjunction with the Institute for Palestine Studies in Ramallah, the archives of this forgotten gem over a century after its birth in Jerusalem.

Full searchable archive of the Jerusalem Quarterly—a journal dedicated to the history, present status, and investigative journalism on the city of Jerusalem. Published continuously since 1998 by the Institute of Jerusalem Studies, an IPS affiliate, this journal is made available to readers and researchers by special arrangement with the Institute for Palestine Studies.
Palestinian Village Histories, Geographies of the Displaced
CPS makes almost forty village memorial books available to the public. Compiled as documentary histories and based on the accounts of those who remember the villages depopulated and largely destroyed in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, these books are presented as dossiers of evidence that these villages existed and were more than just "a place once on a map."
The Nakba Files
Adalah and the CPS are pleased to announce the launch of The Nakba Files, a new website that will serve as an online space for researchers and practitioners to explore new approaches to law in Israel/Palestine.
Palestinians and the City
