FUF Lund and Rädda Barnen Lund local group welcome you to a lecture with Anders Persson, a senior lecturer and expert on the role of the European Union in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This conflict has been one of the longest and most complex in the world, involving not only the Middle Eastern countries, but many other countries around the globe. Following this, it is important to ask why the years of conflict have not yet come to an end. So why does the Israel-Palestine conflict still matter?
This event is in collaboration with Rädda Barnen Lund local group. The lecture is free and open for everyone (it is not possible to participate online).
