Is Justice Still Possible? Palestine, International Law and Public Discourse

2 May '19 at 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

The rights of Palestinians are enshrined in international laws and resolutions. Yet Israel and its supporters continually act against them. What can international law offer to change this reality? In the spirit of Edward Said whose demand for justice for the Palestinian people was unremitting, and to celebrate its tenth year, the Edward W Said Annual London Lecture brings together four world-renowned scholars. Wadie Said will chair a discussion with Susan M. Akram, Hassan Jabareen and Philippe Sands. They will examine the question of Palestine from an international legal perspective, and address the role of political discourse in the struggle for justice in Palestine-Israel.
