The spectre of annexation: A conversation with Professor Avi Shlaim

23 July 2020

This webinar explores the roots and implications of Israel’s plans to annex up to a third of West Bank territory – a manoeuvre seen by many to represent a paradigmatic shift in the character of how the ‘Israel-Palestine’ conflict hereafter unfolds. Professor Shlaim – a leading scholar of Israel’s relations with the Arab world – will be interviewed by CBRL Kenyon Institute Jerusalem’s Director Dr Toufic Haddad before opening up to questions from the audience.
