A New Edition of Seyasat: Analysis of the documents of the 7th FATEH conference

 

The Institute of Public Policies issues a new edition of Seyasat Periodical; an edition that presents a thorough analysis of the documents, conditions, and reactions to the 7th FATEH conference

 The articles under the general title: “The 7th FATEH conference: Analysis of the documents, challenges and the future” provide an analysis that addresses the main topics that were discussed by the movement, given that many of the documents produced by the conference have been channeled to it’s Revolutionary Council for ratification. The drafts of those documents present a thorough presentation of FATEH’s next steps and answer the main question regarding how FATEH perceives the current challenges?

 This includes FATEH’s internal issues, through its bylaws, and the national and political issues; the movement’s political program in particular.

 Seyasat’s new edition opens with a study by the researcher Kamal Abu Shaweesh, in which he reviews FATEH’s draft bylaws as presented at the 7th conference, which has been channeled to the Revolutionary Council for ratification. Abu Shaweesh makes an in-depth analysis of the evolution of the bylaws in comparison with the drafts issued by the 5th and the 6th conferences.

 Another study by researcher Abed Al-Ghani Salameh analyzes the reports presented by the different FATEH commissions to the conference, which present a comprehensive summary of movement’s activities for the period between the two conferences.

 Those reports cover the social, economic and political aspects, including the national relations and the internal relations, which are referred to as the “mobilization and recruitment”.

 In addition, writer Riham Odeh discussed the draft political program presented at the conference, in an attempt to uncover any potential shifts in FATEH’s political positions, especially that the political program is the most important document for the outside world, as it is the document that explains FATEH’s political approach to the Palestinian national future to the world.

 In the articles corner, Muhanad Abdel Hamid writes an article on “the 7th conference: composition, changes and reactions” exploring the identity of FATEH’s new leadership after the conference and its composition. While youth activist Sa’id Lulu contributes with an article on the youth’s relationship with the political parties in Palestine, from the youth’s perspective.

 In an article by the political analyst Mohammed Hawash, Seyasat highlights the context of change in FATEH, through an analysis of the high profile and pivotal political shifts and changes in the regional and international arenas, and the Palestinian potentials in dealing with those shifts and changes.

 The edition also includes interviews with two members of the new FATEH central committee, in order to unravel their positions and opinions regarding FATEH’s current reality and its future. Such interviews are the basis for answering the question on: How do FATEH leaders see their conference and the future of their movement?

 In the international policy section, Seyasat publishes a report on the international and regional positions of holding the conference, the speeches given by heads of different delegations, representing Arab and international parties.

 The edition also includes a review of the Nabil Shaath diaries, as a former central committee member and one of FATEH’s prominent figures.

 In his book, Shaath presents a summary of his rich and unique experience; starting from Jaffa, where he was born, recounting his own personal account, as a prominent actor in the Palestinian history.
