House of Commons Roundtable Discussion on

The Palestinian Nakba – 68 Years of Diaspora

In 1948 Israel caused the displacement of approximately 750,000 Palestinian who became refugees in neighboring Arab countries while at least 200,000 were internally displaced. The Nakba represents the dispossession of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians and the expropriation of their homes and lands. Today is evident that the Nakba is still an ongoing process as millions of Palestinian refugees remain displaced and dispossessed. 

On the 68th anniversary of the Nakba, we are holding a roundtable discussion on the possible mechanism to solve the Arab-Israeli conflict in light of in light of International law and the UN resolutions. Speakers will discuss the role of the international community and mechanisms of Independence and self-determination for the Palestinian people.
