International law in Israel and Palestine

A conflict that may seem fundamentally simple: two peoples competing for the same territory. However, in all the years that the conflict between Israel and Palestine has remained unresolved, increasing complications have arisen and on October 7, 2023, the conflict flared up again, leading to some of the worst clashes in many years. International law is often referred to in the media, but what does it mean?

FUF's local group in Uppsala and the Palestine groups invites you to a lecture on international law in relation to the ongoing conflict. During the course of the evening, we will examine which of the laws of international law apply, whether there are different views on this and what the experts say about international law in Israel and Palestine. To our help we have invited Henrik Carlborg, who is chairman of the Palestine groups in Sweden. He has a bachelor's degree in law, a master's degree in Middle Eastern studies and several years of work experience working with international international law.

When? November 21 at 18.00 to 19.30

Where? Ostrom hall, Gamla Torget, Östra Ågatan 19, Uppsala

FUF Uppsala and the Palestine groups offer coffee. Please note that you need to register to participate. You will find the registration link here. It closes at 12.00 noon on November 21. Hope to see you there!

About the organizers

FUF Uppsala is a non-profit local group and part of the Association for Development Issues (FUF) – a politically and religiously independent organization that works to spread knowledge about global development issues. The local group consists of students in Uppsala who want to increase their own and others' knowledge of global challenges and injustices.

Palestine groups in Sweden is a politically and religiously unbound solidarity organization that was formed in 1976 through the merger of local Palestinian groups. The organization today has around 1 members and 300 local groups around Sweden.

Note! Both FUF and the Palestine groups are religiously and politically unbound organizations. Thus, the lecture intends to act in a knowledge-spreading purpose about international law in relation to the conflict between Israel and Palestine.
