The Question of Jerusalem: Occupation, Discrimination and Displacement
Tue 25 April 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 BST

Various steps have been adopted to achieve this objective, including the isolation of East Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank, land appropriation, and discriminatory policies on planning and construction and budget allotment.
