Cambridge City Amnesty are organising this talk on Thursday 15th November, 7.30 pm at the Friends Meeting House Jesus Lane.
Dr Mona Jebril will discuss her Cambridge PhD research on the impact of the siege and conflict on higher education in Gaza. The study explores the past and present higher education under occupation, and how this experience may be evolving in a shifting socio-political context in the Arab world. It is a pioneer contribution to the development of Palestinian higher education and to the dialogue on the Arab Spring from the Palestinian perspective.
