Back by popular demand are two of the highly acclaimed speakers from our last conference. Please join us to hear Prof. Mohammed Wattad of  the Zefat Academic College School of Law in Israel, in conversation with Prof. Mira Sucharov of Carleton University, Ottawa. It will also be an opportunity to participate in a more thorough discussion than our conference could allow. Topics will include

  • the current situation in Israel
  • challenges to democracy and inclusion
  • BDS and other movements impacting Israel and communities worldwide
  • strategies to hasten a solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict towards a secure and lasting peace.

You will not want to miss this interesting and timely event, with two very knowledgeable and dynamic speakers!

He has written and spoken extensively on societal challenges confronting the Middle East and Israel, including relations between Israel’s Jewish and Arab citizens and Israel’s external relations with surrounding Arab states.
