We, the organizers of this conference will maximize our collective efforts to raise awareness; to improve existing research and documentation; to induce initiatives on grassroots level, civil societies and government officials to put an end to the apartheid regime, that is Israel. In March 2017, ESCWA had published a report on “Israeli Practices Towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid” and it is our honor to have both of UN Special Rapporteurs that prepared the report and among the worlds’ leading experts on Palestine, Prof. Dr. Virginia Tilley and Prof. Dr. Richard Falk, to be the speakers of our event.
