A one-day conference looking at the Palestine-Israel question through the lens of Europe.

Organised in partnership with EuroPal Forum , the conference will bring together some of the world’s leading experts on the subject to discuss issues related to the EU’s foreign policy and to assess their success over the years.

The panel of experts will also provide an assessment of pro-Israel lobby groups in Europe and contrast that with advocacy campaigns for Palestinian human rights. They will assess the strengths and weaknesses of Palestinian groups and suggest ideas on improving their effectiveness.
