Join us at Afternoon Conversation Series (ACS) for an interesting conversation! ACS is a facilitated weekly experience put on by WUD Global Connections where you can engage in friendly conversations over different interactive themes presented each week.
This week our topic of discussion will be "Israel"
Much has been talked about Israel and Palestine and the ongoing conflict in Gaza and West Bank. However, in international diplomacy, most of Israel’s neighbors do not recognize its existence as a state. AIPAC is hugely criticized in the United States for lobbying the US government to provide ever increasing amounts of aid to Israel. However, movements such as Boycott Divestment Sanctions are also gaining ground, especially across American college campuses. As BDS website claims, the movement was a major drop behind the 46% drop in foreign direct investment in Israel in 2014. What is the future for Israel? What is the future for American opinion on Israel? Should Muslim countries recognize Israel and engage with diplomatically to tailor a two-state solution?
Join us with Prof. Philip Hollander in exploring this important topic for a relaxing Friday afternoon and make new friends. FREE Refreshments are served on a first-come, first-served basis each week—come early to ensure your treat!
Our events are open to UW students, faculty and staff as well as Union members and their guests.
