Feb. 15: Arab Revolt and the Future of Palestine with Marwan Bishara

NYU Students for Justice in Palestine Presents:

ARAB REVOLT and the FUTURE of PALESTINE:  The impact of the Arab uprising and the Palestine Papers

Featuring Marwan Bishara Senior Political Analyst, Al Jazeera

When one man’s act of self-immolation in Tunisia ignites a revolution in Egypt, the power of the people and the prospects of an end to corrupt regimes permeate the rest of the Arab world. What does this mean for the future of Palestinians living under the Israeli Occupation? Can the power of not only the Egyptian or the Tunisian people, but the Palestinian people, ever overcome the bureaucracies, injustices, and corruption of foreign policy? Join us for a discussion with Al Jazeera’s Marwan Bishara.

Marwan Bishara is the senior political analyst of Al Jazeera and the editor and host of Empire. He was previously a professor of International Relations at the American University of Paris and a fellow at the Ecole des Hautes et Sciences Sociales. Bishara writes and speaks extensively on global politics and is an expert on global issues, US foreign policy, and the greater Middle East. Marwan is a Palestinian from Nazareth.
