Maxwell School to Host Webinar on ‘Stories From the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict’ Jan. 30
The Daniel Patrick Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs’ Middle Eastern Studies Program will host a webinar titled “Dialogue Meeting: Stories from the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict” on Tuesday, Jan. 30, from noon to 1:30 p.m. Interested students, faculty and staff at Syracuse University should register in advance.
The webinar will include members of the Parents Circle-Families Forum (PCFF), a grassroots organization of Palestinian and Israeli families who have lost immediate family members due to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The PCFF believes that the process of reconciliation between nations is a prerequisite to achieving a sustainable peace. Through the years, the PCFF has arranged about 8,500 dialogue meetings, with about 250,000 participating youth and adults.
During this virtual discussion moderated by Maxwell School Professor of Practice Catherine Gerard, PCFF members Arab Aramin (Palestine) and Ofer Lior (Israel) will tell their personal stories of bereavement and explain their choice to engage in reconciliation instead of revenge. Following their stories, Aramin and Lior will answer questions from the audience.
