The Human Rights Society At JGU with Prof. Nawal Hend are more than delighted to invite you to a guest lecture to speak on the common practice of "White- Washing Occupation terminology" AKA beautifying and frosting the atrocities and legal characterization of an occupation with "democratic" and "liberal" terms, as an effort to normalize it, and its various manifestations in the legal, academic, and journalism fields.

Join us to discuss such hot topic through a focus on the Palestinian Occupation experience, with our outstanding speakers:

  • Prof. Mariam Barghouthi: A Palestinian scholar and Journalist.

  • Prof. Ata Hindi: A Palestinian- American TWAIL Scholar.

  • Prof. Moien Odeh: an American Human Rights Lawyer and Scholar.

Our speakers shall share with us how this systemic procedure is carried on through our media means, lectures, legislations, and academic syllabus.

What implications does it bare? What restrictions does it impose on legal and journalism practitioners? and most importantly how can we counterclaim it?

Join us in our enriching conversation:
