On International Women’s Day: Women, Education and Empowerment in Palestine

8 March '23 at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

On International Women’s Day, this discussion examines the experience of women in higher education in the context of the current escalating military violence, dispossession and shrinking civil society space faced by the Palestinian people.

While considering a gender analysis of these phenomena, this panel also discusses the ways in which Palestinian women are collectively resisting their oppression.

Event co-sponsored with Friends of Birzeit University (FOBZU).

This event is part of the ‘Interrogating Development’ series at the Department of International Development at King’s.

This event is in-person. The talk and discussion will be followed by a reception.


FOBZU are a resident organisation at The Arab British Centre.
