Visiting Speaker - Ben White, Analyst, Journalist and Author

"Palestine-Israel: The Two-state Mirage and the Apartheid Reality"

The occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) has now been under Israeli military rule for half a century, during which time - and accelerating in recent years - a de facto, single regime has emerged in Israel and the oPt. Despite such developments, the dominant paradigm for 'conflict resolution' remains a two-state solution. But when different actors mean very different things by such a formula, and when key Israeli political leaders openly reject even the idea of Palestinian statehood, does paying lip service to a 'two-state solution' help conceal and prolong an apartheid reality?
