SCII Focus Series: Palestinian Freedom, Israeli Apartheid, and Transnational Solidarity

September 30, 2021 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

The Schoolcraft College International Institute presents a focus series with Dr. Noura Erakat on “Palestinian Freedom, Israeli Apartheid, and Transnational Solidarity”

This lecture will address the racial dimensions of Israeli settler colonization of Palestinian lands and how it is tantamount to apartheid as defined by the 1973 Convention, the legal dimension of apartheid, and the distinctions within Palestinian intellectual thought on the matter. The lecture will also explore how transnational solidarity has been a key source of Palestinian resistance and steady social justice transformation.

This is free and open to the public.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the University of Michigan LSA Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies.
