Event description

Description


The LSE Faith Centre is delighted to be co-hosting Solutions not Sides in collaboration with LSESU Voices of Israel-Palestine as part of their Women in the Conflict event series.

The Solutions Not Sides Programme, which has been formulated with the input of both Israelis and Palestinians, as well as senior members of Jewish and Muslim communities, is designed to prepare students to make a positive, solutions-focused contribution to debates on Israel-Palestine. The Israel-Palestine conflict polarises students in schools and universities across Europe, with aggressive campaigning often alienating and intimidating students, and shutting down constructive dialogue on the issue. Solutions Not Sides focuses on direct student interaction with Israeli and Palestinian peace activists, and has delivered conflict resolution training, provided education, and facilitated discussion on the conflict in the UK and Western Europe since 2010, engaging thousands of students in the process.

Join Shaked Hasson and Amal Khayat for an evening of dialogue and Q & A on their experiences and working for solutions not sides.

Shaked Hasson is a 28 years old activist who was, until recently, an adviser to the opposition whip, MK Merav Michaeli from the Labour party. A student of Philosophy, Political Science and International Relations at the Open University of Israel, Shaked is also the Leader of Young Labor’s Tel Aviv branch. During 2015 Shaked lived in Burundi for a year and established a project for women empowerment in the local area.

"I'm Amal, a Palestinian from East Jerusalem. I believe in inclusion, humanity and love, and I believe that getting to know one another is the first step towards ending the conflict, that is why I'm involved in dialogue. However, I know that dialogue alone is simply not enough if we want to change the status quo, and that's what I'd like to do. I want a better future for both people, and I want to take active part towards that change, and I know that the way to do it is long and hard and involves working on multiple fronts, but I'm a stubborn one, and I'm doing my best not to lose this fight."


Join us at 6.30pm for a 6.45pm start.

There will be a dialogue followed by discussion and Q & A and refreshments will be provided.
