Annual Lecture 2017
Join us this June for a challenging and thought-provoking lecture that explores Britain's historical and current relationship with Palestine.
We are privileged to welcome as our speaker Professor Avi Shlaim, Emeritus Fellow of St Antony's College and Emeritus Professor of International Relations at the University of Oxford.
2017 marks some significant and momentous anniversaries: 100 years since the Balfour Declaration, which committed Britain to support a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine; 70 years since the ill-fated UN Partition Plan for Palestine; 50 years since the Six Day War and the start of Israel’s occupation; and ten years since the start of Israel’s blockade of Gaza. Professor Shlaim will explore this topic in his lecture titled ‘Britain and Palestine: From Balfour to Blair and Beyond’.
We hope you can join us for this event.
