“THE PEACE PROCESS IN ISRAEL/PALESTINE – FROM BREAKTHROUGH TO BREAKDOWN – IS THERE A WAY FORWARD?”
Speaker: AFIF SAFIEH – PLO Roving Ambassador for Special Missions
Afif Safieh, born in Jerusalem in 1950, is one of Palestine’s most distinguished diplomats. He served as General Delegate of the PLO in London throughout the 1990s, and later held this role in Washington and Moscow. He recently published a book of his collected writings from the early 1980s through to 2005. He will be talking about the themes and arguments in these writings and assess the current situation and how positive change can be fought for. Since we extended our invitation to Afif there have been two significant developments – the wikileaks revelations about Palestinian negotiations, and the developing unrest/uprisings in several countries in and close to the region, both of which add to the timeliness of this meeting. Copies of Afif’s book will be available to buy at the meeting. All Welcome.
