Lecture: ‘Observation & Analysis on the Gaza Strip and the United Nations Goldstone Report’ by Jennifer Loewenstein on February 11, 2010

The Middle East Interest Group and Center for Middle East Studies present a lecture by UW Lecturer Jennifer Loewenstein at 7:00 PM on Thursday February 11, 2010. The lecture will be held in room 1101 in The Humanities Building on the University of Wisconsin Campus.

The 2009 U.N. investigation on war crimes committed by both Israeli and the Palestinian Hamas forces during the 2008-09 Israeli Operation Cast Lead has sparked controversy across the globe. Richard Goldstone, the leader of the commission, defends the position that both sides must commit to conduct internal investigations and uphold international law. Over a year after the Operation, the fate of justice remains in the question.

In September 2009, UW Lecturer Jennifer Loewenstein traveled to the Gaza Strip to survey the conditions created by Operation Cast Lead, the prolonged Israeli siege of Gaza and the Hamas authority. Loewenstein has previously spoke on issues pertaining to the Palestinian territories at the European Parliament and the United Nations Council in Geneva, Switzerland.
