2017 Palestine Center Annual Conference

17 Nov 2017


“The Palestinian Struggle: Adversity on All Fronts”
Friday, November 17, 2017

8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Every year the dire situation in Palestine seems unsurpassable in a region distinguished by seemingly never-ending conflicts. It is hard to imagine things getting worse and yet they do. The vital issues of Palestine remain unresolved under the dust of the war in Syria, bombings in Yemen, regional rivalries, and changing polarities of global power, while life becomes increasingly difficult for those living in the Occupied Territories and refugee camps. The theme of this year’s Palestine Center Annual Conference returns to these issues. Panelists will discuss the 50-year-old Israeli occupation, coordination of the Palestinian Authority with the occupation, and Israel’s human rights violations. They will examine the continuing problem of representation and media bias when it comes to the Palestinian issue. They will also analyze the status of Jerusalem, situation of Gaza, and persistence of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement with its challenges and successes in the United States.
