Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) is pleased to announce that it is hosting a Canadian tour by renowned Israeli historian Ilan Pappé from April 30 to May 5.
Dr. Pappé, a professor at the University of Exeter’s Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies (UK), is currently Director of Europe’s first Centre for Palestine Studies, housed within the Institute.
He is a specialist in 20th Century ethno-politics and the author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine and nine other books.
The tour, entitled “The False Paradigm of Peace: Revisiting the Palestine Question,” will offer Canadians a fresh perspective on the prerequisites for a durable, just resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Dr. Pappé will discuss the reasons behind the decades of failed negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, and what the future has in hold for both peoples.
