Debate and film screening on Palestinian perspectives on the Israel-Palestine conflict

Human rights defender Mahmoud Abu Rahma discusses Israel’s separation, closure regime and political violence policies in the Gaza Strip and how it fits in the wider policy vis-à-vis the Palestinian people. Ines Abdel Razek from the Palestinian Institute for Public Diplomacy highlights the international dimension and the need to bring the human side of Palestine and its people to the world.

The debate will be moderated by Brigitte Herremans (Human Rights Centre Ghent University) and Katelijne Suetens (Broederlijk Delen). After the Q&A with Mahmoud and Ines, we will screen the short film ‘The Present’ by Farah Nabulsi. The movie that was awarded a Bafta and was nominated for an Oscar depicts the reality of ordinary life in the West Bank, fragmented by Israel’s matrix of control.
