Justice for Some & Black Solidarity with Palestinians

Date(s) - June 20, 2019
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Busboys and Poets

Join IPS on World Refugee Day to celebrate the newly published book of our very own board member Noura Erakat, Author of Justice for Some: Law and the Question of Palestine, Noura is also a human rights attorney and assistant professor at George Mason University. She has served as legal counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives and as a legal advocate for Palestinian refugee rights at the United Nations.

Following a catored reception, Khury Petersen-Smith, the Michael Ratner Middle East Fellow at IPS and a co-author and organizer of the 2015 Black Solidarity with Palestine statement, will lead a deep digging discussion with Noura to concluded with a question and answer session and book signing. In these intense times of Trump administration bellicose threats against self-determination in Latin America, support for human rights atrocities of Israel, and more, few can illuminate an understanding of the intersections like Noura Erakat.

There will also be a poem by Rasha Abdulhadi, executive director of Split This Rock and queer Palestinian poet and organizer.

Justice in the Question of Palestine is often framed as a question of law. Yet none of the Israel-Palestinian conflict’s most vexing challenges have been resolved by judicial intervention. Justice for Some offers a new approach to understanding the Palestinian struggle for freedom, told through the power and control of international law.
