Ariella Azoulay, Adi Ophir, Aim Duelle Luski in another conference which supports the Right of Return


Right of Return is the moral and political basis for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Recognition of the Right of Return is, therefore, the basis for this conference. The goal of this conference

is promoting public debate around questions concerning the return of Palestinian refugees, to open a

wide array of ideas and proposals about different possibilities of return. Central questions this conference

raises are how can the return occur in practice, and what shapes of shared life will be possible to develop

with the return of Palestinian refugees.

The conference is open to the general public. Entry is free of charge.

All activities will have translation to Hebrew, Arabic, and English (unless otherwise noted).
