Palestine Podcast #53: The Future of US Policy Towards Palestine
Over the past four years, the Trump administration has enacted major long-term changes to US policy with regard to Palestine. With US elections looming, in this episode of the Palestine Podcast, we hear from Al-Shabaka analysts Hatem Bazian and Nadia Hijab who join host Nur Arafeh to discuss what possibilities lie ahead for the next administration to either expand or reverse this trajectory, and how can Palestinians leverage their power to influence future decision-making?
