Moderated by Jonathan

The Conference will also be privileged to present a Student Panel of interfaith campus organization leaders, uninvolved directly with either side of the conflict, and not politically motivated, who will address the atmosphere on their campus during the month of March, when Israel Apartheid Week and the activities of those conducting a war against Israel on campus impact all students.

The Conference will address the contemporary situation in the Middle East, discuss the history and legal framework of the conflict, the current political status of peace strategies, the international governing bodies who have influence in the region, and the atmosphere on North American university campuses ‘when Middle East politics invade campus’. They will also offer suggestions and tools for improving the conversation, changing the narrative, and building the coalitions that will ultimately create a better environment for all students on campus.
