IBEI statement on the situation in Gaza

The Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) strongly condemns the humanitarian crisis resulting from Israel's blockade of humanitarian aid to Gaza.

We share the sentiments expressed by other research institutes and universities in Spain and demand the immediate and definitive cessation of Israeli military operations, as well as of Hamas' armed actions, and the release of Israeli civilians kidnapped by Hamas in their violent attack on civilians inside Israel on October 7. We also demand that the State of Israel respects international law, and allows the entry of all humanitarian aid into Gaza to address the emergency needs of its civilian population, and that the appropriate measures are implemented by international bodies to promptly undertake the reconstruction and recovery of the Palestinian territory. Israel must also guarantee the full protection of the staff of hospital and humanitarian facilities.

The IBEI reiterates its mission to contribute to a more effective and democratic governance of international affairs through the training of new generations of professionals in international relations and political science, and underline our core values of respect, cooperation, dialogue and the peaceful resolution of conflicts. In this light, we call for intensified dialogue to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict and condemn all expressions of hate and discrimination.
