Born in Jerusalem, Bassem spent the first 33 years of his life in the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) Shuafat regugee camp. He became a prominent figure during the Palestinian uprising from 1987 to1993 as senior field researcher for B’Tselem, the Israeli information centre for human rights in Judea, Samaria and Gaza.

His views are based on years of systematic research of Palestinians, including during the 2014 fighting in Gaza. He speaks about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement and discusses why Europeans stopped funding his Palestinian NGO.

Bassem has spent 26 years researching UNRWA policies and has written extensively on reform.

He travels widely lecturing on the Palestine-Israel conflict. In recent years he has visited Canada, Italy, Japan, South Africa, Korea, Australia and Russia.
