CONFERENCE: Peace with Justice – how to get there

Thursday 6 June 2024 at Bush House KCL and online Bush House, 30 Aldwych, London WC2B 4BG
The conference will be followed by a reception for all speakers and attendees.

Six months on from the tragic events of 7 October 2023 is the right time to announce our 2024 Conference.

The people of Gaza have been subjected to a level of death, injury and destruction surpassing all previous cycles of violence, and now face man-made famine. The West Bank is locked down, its economy at a standstill, while settler violence goes unpunished. The people of Israel suffer from the lasting horror of the 7 October Hamas attack, their fear for the hostages still captive, and the wider regional threat. Despite a growing international consensus pressing for an end to the conflict, the dreadful prospect of further escalation in Gaza is real.

On 6 June, in partnership with the History Dept of King’s College London, we are bringing together a range of speakers with ideas on the pathways out of this dreadful calamity towards Peace with Justice for both peoples. Palestinians will provide eye-witness accounts, insight and fresh thinking; other speakers will cover the regional and international context. There will be a Q &A with MPs focused on what actions the British Government should take to advance equality under the law.

  • Andrew Whitley, Balfour Project Chair
  • Professor Adam Sutcliffe, Professor of European History, King’s College London
    Mohamed Ghalayini, Gazan scientist
