Northern California Tour Panel

  • 0

Scholars for Peace in the Middle East (SPME) is proud to announce that thanks to generous support of the Koret Foundation,  we will be presenting a series of four panel discussions on Northern California campuses: UC Davis, UC Berkeley, Stanford University, and UC Santa Cruz.

The panels will address the current relations between Israelis and Palestinians post the Oslo peace accords and the prospects of peace in the future. The panel of experts will be looking at this question while explaining the impact of the American and Israeli elections, the rise of Islamist regimes, and the threat of Iran.

The panelists are, Jonathan Adelman, University of Denver, PhD, Donna Robinson Divine, Smith College and SPME board member, PhD, Richard Cravatts, PhD, Simmons College and President of SPME, and Asaf Romirowsky, PhD, Acting Executive Director, SPME.

Given the centrality and importance of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to American Foreign Policy, we hope to bring another perspective to the campus discourse while addressing these critical issues.

All events are open to the public and are free of charge to attend.
