On 4 March, The Institute for Historical Justice and Reconciliation, Leiden University and The Hague Institute for Global Justice are hosting Professor Motti Golani, Chair of the International Israel Studies Program of Tel Aviv University, and Dr. Adel Manna, Senior Research Fellow of the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, who will present their joint IHJR-publication on peace and reconciliation in Israel/Palestine.
In the Israel and Palestine conflict, history is only rarely used for its potentially transformative role in the peace process. To strengthen the potentially powerful role the study of historical narratives may play in conflict resolution, and to reflect on the contribution played by professional historians and educators the organizers have selected two eminent scholars to discuss their research on the 1948 War, a crucial historical moment for Palestinians and Israelis.
During the event, Professor Motti Golani, Chair of the International Israel Studies Program of Tel Aviv University and Dr. Adel Manna, Senior Research Fellow of the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute will present their joint IHJR-publication Two Sides of the Coin: Independence and Nakba 1948 – Two Narratives of the 1948 and its Outcome. Professor André Gerrits, chair of the International Studies Program at Leiden University will moderate the debate. Ambassador Nikola Dimitrov, Distinguished Fellow at The Hague Institute, will provide an introduction.
4 March 2015 – 16:00 to 17:30
The Hague Institute for Global Justice, Sophialaan 10, The Hague
