On September 21, Palestinian Roving Ambassador Dr. Husam Zomlot gave a public lecture in the Woodrow Wilson School on the current state of Palestinian political strategy. Dr. Zomlot is currently an adjunct professor of public policy at Birzeit University and has served many years as a senior diplomat representing the Palestinian Authority. His work focuses on international interventions in conflict and post-conflict zones. His current research examines ‘peace-building’ and ‘state-building’ conceptual frameworks and the prescription of economic and institutional solutions for political problems in ethnically and politically charged conflict zones.
This public lecture was offered as part of a new series called “Conversations About Peace” sponsored by the Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. This new series is designed to engage students, scholars, visiting practitioners and the community in thinking about the peace process with a more proactive, pro-peace approach.
