Subject: Lunch with Dr. Sari Nusseibeh

Please join us for lunch on Friday, December 10 from 12 to 1:00 p.m. at 126 High Street, Room 912 with Sari Nusseibeh, president of Al-Quds University, on the subject of

After Arafat: What’s next?

Presented by JCRC, Anti-Defamation League and American Jewish Committee Dr. Sari Nusseibeh was born in 1949 in Jerusalem.

He received a doctorate in Islamic philosophy from Harvard in 1978 and became a professor of philosophy at Bir Zeit University in the West Bank. He is the Founder and head of the Palestinian Consultancy Group, undertaking research projects on the management of Palestinian infrastructure.

Nusseibeh was appointed the PLO’s representative in East Jerusalem in 2001, following the sudden death of Faisal Husseini. Since then, Nusseibeh has been regarded by many as a leading voice of Palestinian moderation, participating in countless meetings with Israeli peace activists.

Dr. Nusseibeh will tell us about his role as the PLO’s representative in East Jerusalem and his People’s Voice initiative.

He will also share with us his insights into the future of the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians in the era after Arafat.

We hope you can join us.
