Speaker: Marwan Darweish, Principal lecturer in Peace Studies at Coventry University.
Date: Tuesday 7th June
Time: 7:30 – 9:00
Venue: University of Wolverhampton, Wulfruna Street, WV1 1LY, Millennium City Building (Room MC001)
Marwan Darweish talks about his recent book, co-authored with Andrew Rigby, which examines the role of the unarmed civil resistance movement in the Palestinian liberation struggle. Marwan and his colleagues work informs a contemporary readership about this under-emphasized dimension of the Palestinian struggle, arguing that at the present juncture the popular resistance movement, especially in the West Bank, is the most significant form of struggle against the ongoing occupation.
Popular Protest in Palestine also addresses the international dimensions of the Palestinian struggle, focusing in particular on the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) campaign, the role of international solidarity activists in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and beyond, and the changing forms of engagement developed by international agencies seeking to work on the roots of the conflict whilst fulfilling their humanitarian aid mandates.
This event is open to members of the public, no booking required.
