Event description

Description

Join us for a conversation on Jerusalem at the Rhodes House with Professor Avi Shlaim, Professor Karma Nabulsi, and our very own Nur Arafeh.

This event is an introduction to a series of panels and conversations we want to organize at the Rhodes House to raise awareness about the lived realities in Palestine. This panel is designed to provide an introductory, yet highly informed perspective on Jerusalem. Therefore, any questions will be highly welcomed - especially from those with no background on the topic.
The discussion is particularly timely, as the Trump administration recently unilaterally announced the city as the capital of Israel. It will be a space for us to learn from each other, identify questions, and learn from trained experts on issues relating to Jerusalem and the conflict at large.
