Second Annual SIS Leadership Dinner


October 31, 2016

Professor Mohammed Dajani Daoudi, Weston Fellow at the Washington Institute, will speak to AU students this Monday, October 31st @ 12pm in SIS 300. Light luncheon fare will be provided.
Dajani, a former member of Fatah and the PLO in the 1970s, was banned from both Lebanon and Jordan for his work. Over time, Dajani began to see the importance of peacebuilding and conflict resolution between Palestinians and Israelis.  A professor at Al-Quds University, he has led peacebuilding efforts between Israeli and Palestinian religious leaders in Turkey, including a well-publicized trip to Auschwitz to show the “suffering that has helped shape the historical consciousness of the other side” (Haaretz).
In his address to AU, Professor Dajani will discuss his own transformation and address the issue of polarization on US campuses with regard to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and how to engage in a constructive conversation.
Professor Barbara Wien will introduce and facilitate the discussion.

This event is an initiative of OneVoice, Washington D.C. in partnership with the Society for Peace and Conflict Resolution, Creative Peace Initiatives, and the Culture and Communication Student Forum.

Please RSVP here.
