Description


UKLFI Charitable Trust invites you to
The San Remo Centenary Celebration
On Sunday 26 April 2020
from 3.30pm to 9pm
in North West London

The San Remo Conference, from 19 to 26 April 1920, was an even more important step in the creation of the modern State of Israel than the Balfour Declaration. At this conference the Allied powers agreed on the future of the Middle East territories liberated from the Turkish Empire. The vast majority was assigned for the creation of new Arab States under British or French mandates, but Palestine was allocated for the reconstitution of the Jewish National Home, under a British Mandate. The agreement transformed the policy expressed in the Balfour Declaration from a unilateral aspiration of the British Government into a binding international agreement.

UKLFI Charitable Trust is organising a special event in London, to celebrate the centenary of this Conference.

Leading speakers will discuss the historical background to the San Remo Conference, the legal effects of irs resolutions and the relevance of these decisions to Israel and the Middle East today.

The conference will be chaired by Baroness Ruth Deech. The speakers will include:
  • Professor Eugene Kontorovich, Professor at George Mason’s Antonin Scalia School of Law, specializing in constitutional and international law and Director of the Kohelet Institute
  • Dr James Vaughan, lecturer in International History at Aberystwyth University and specialist in the history of British and American diplomatic policy towards the Middle East
  • Natasha Hausdorff, barrister and specialist in Public International Law
  • Professor Alan Dershowitz, renowned American lawyer, by video.
Tickets: £50 suggested donation, including Kosher light refreshments and drinks reception

UKLFI Charitable Trust reserves the right to refuse admission, in particular on grounds of security.
