At an upcoming talk at Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q), historian, social activist, and author Professor Ilan Pappé will discuss the opportunities and challenges facing Palestine during the term of President Donald Trump. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be held tomorrow at 6.30pm, at GU-Q's Education City campus.
Pappé is a professor of history and director of the European Center for Palestine Studies at the University of Exeter and an internationally recognised researcher focusing on the modern Middle East and Arab-Israeli conflict. His lecture aims to offer insight into the current and future impact of the Trump presidency, including opportunities that may arise from the recent decision to move the location of the US Embassy to Jerusalem. 'The talk will explain why the Trump decision was not all bad news, as it will force anyone involved in the Palestine question to rethink the peace process and the basic ideas underlining it, as Trump is taking out the US from any mediating and meaningful role in the so-called peace process, said Pappé. Pappé holds a Ph.D. from the University of Oxford and authored of more than 20 books.
