Briefing: With Richard Falk and Phyllis Bennis
Hear about the current human rights situation in the occupied Palestinian territories.
The situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territories is a topic of some controversy and conflict. Israel’s continuing occupation of the Palestinian territory, and the lack of respect of international humanitarian law, have resulted in a protection crisis with serious humanitarian consequences.
Join us for a briefing with Richard Falk, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967 and Phyllis Bennis, Fellow of the Institute for Policy. Her books include Understanding the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict: A Primer.
