ICAHD/BRICUP Speaking tour: Jeff Halper & Ghada Karmi - Fighting Israeli Apartheid: the case for BDS
15-20 March 2010
Ghada Karmi and Jeff Halper, two leading lights of the struggle to create the just conditions on the ground in Palestine-Israel which are prerequisite to sustainable peace and reconciliation in that region, are undertaking speaking engagements together in UK universities later this month. The dates and venues of public meetings where you can hear them are below.
Dr Ghada Karmi is a leading Palestinian academic and writer. She was born in Jerusalem, but was brought up and educated in England. Currently she is a Research Fellow at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter, where she teaches conflict resolution in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. She is also on the Board of the Council for Arab-British Understanding (CAABU) and a patron of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
Her major area of work has been on the Palestine/Israel conflict and she has published widely on this subject. She is also a well-known figure on British radio and TV. Her most recent and widely acclaimed memoir, In Search of Fatima; a Palestinian story (Verso Press, 2002), represents a rare example of Palestinian personal narrative writing in English. Her new book, Married to another man: Israel’s dilemma in Palestine, deals with the One-State solution in Israel/Palestine.
Prof Jeff Halper, a Professor of Anthropology,is co-founder and Director of Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions. The constructive activism of ICAHD and the quality of Halper's analysis of the conflict, combined with his prophetic voice on Israel's self-destructive policies, have won him wide recognition. In 2005 he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
