Yehuda Lukacs, director for the Center of Global Education, moderates a panel discussion today from noon to 3:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center Cinema. “The Palestinian Uprising: One Year Later,” features a number of high-profile speakers addressing the impact of the Palestinian uprising as it exists in today’s society.

Murhaf Jouejati, scholar-in-residence at the Middle East Institute, speaks on the uprising’s impact on Syria, Lebanon, and Arab nations; Aaron Miller, senior advisor for Arab-Israeli negotiations for the U.S. Department of State, addresses United States policy; Yossi Shain, Goldman professor of government at Georgetown University, talks about the Israeli approach towards Palestine; and Shibley Telhami, Anwar Sadat chair for peace and development at the University of Maryland, discusses the Palestinian perspective.

Lukacs hopes the panel will foster “a deeper understanding of the lingering crisis as we go into the year after the Palestinian uprising.”
