Has the Palestinian leadership failed its people?
The recording starts at 19:30 sharp, please arrive by 19:00 to reserve your seat.
Mehdi Hasan goes Head to Head with Dr Saeb Erekat, Chief Palestinian Negotiator who drafted the historic Oslo accords in 1995 and is currently working with US Secretary of State John Kerry in the latest peace initiative.
But as talks with Israel reach yet another stalemate, has Dr Erekat’s credibility finally come to the end of the line? And how much is the Palestinian Authority to blame for the woes of its people?
Join us at the Oxford Union for a robust interview that will look at the growing frustrations and disillusion on the Palestinian street. Will the political rivalry between Hamas and Fatah continue to sabotage Palestinian unity and chances of statehood? How is corruption and internal mismanagement effecting daily life in the West Bank and Gaza? And how must the Palestinian leadership change in order to finally improve the quality of life for the Palestinian people?
