Caabu and MBA Students and Alumni invite you to an online panel discussion on Thursday 3 June at 6pm (UK time) 7pm (CET) on the current and future status of the Palestinian struggle for freedom and justice. Register for The Future of Palestinian Human Rights: Online panel discussion on the current and future status of the Palestinian struggle for freedom and justice, here. The event will also be live-streamed on Caabu's Youtube channel which you can subscribe to here.
The continued struggle for Palestinian rights, justice and accountability, following the recent escalations in the occupied Palestinian Territory and Israel, not least following the forced dispossession and displacement of Palestinian families in the occupied East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah, has highlighted the immediate need to further address issues of infringements on Palestinian human rights and adherence and implementation of international law in the face of the ongoing Israeli occupation.
We'll be speaking with former Jordanian foreign minister Marwan Muasher, former Human Rights Watch MENA director Sarah Leah Whitson, and Senior Analyst at the International Crisis Group Tareq Baconi.
The panel will be moderated by prize-winning author, journalist, and war correspondent Janine Di Giovanni. Register here.
