Phyllis Bennis: In Conversation with Fawaz Gerges

Speaker: Phyllis Bennis, New Internationalism Project, Institute for Policy Studies 

Friday 8 February 2013, 16.30-18.00, CLM 3.02, Clement House, LSE

While US policy towards Israel remains unchanged, the long-standing assumption that most Americans – even most Jewish Americans – agree with that policy no longer holds. In the media, in popular culture, in universities and particularly within the Jewish community, there are signs of major shifts. In conversation with MEC Director Professor Fawaz Gerges, writer, analyst and activist Phyllis Bennis discusses these changes with reflection on her own political evolution from Zionist youth leader to anti-war internationalist and Palestinian human rights activist.
