A Trip to the West Bank: Between Graffiti, Deprivation, Struggle and Resilience

Dr. Tiziana Leone from the London School of Economics and Political Science  (LSE) visited the Institute of Community and Public Health, Birzeit University (ICPH/BZU)  in October 2018. Dr. Leone is part of an LSE team collaborating in research with ICPH faculty and researchers which focuses on examining the links between different forms of deprivation and health in the occupied Palestinian territory. During this visit, the team of researchers from ICPH and LSE worked on multi-level analysis of data from the West Bank and Gaza Strip pertaining to deprivation (including food insecurity) and health. Once back to LSE, she wrote this piece on her experience in the occupied Palestinian territory.
