In his lecture, Dr. Abdallah Abu Eid will focus on the Palestinian Authority’s efforts to gain recognition of the Palestinian State. The culmination of this process is the submission of an application by the Palestinian Authority to become a member of the UN. It is expected that a vote on this issue by the UN General Assembly will take place in September.
Dr Abu Eid will speak about previous UN Security Council resolutions and other international accords that address the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories. He will also touch upon the responsibilities that arise therefrom for other UN members and how UN votes influence the situation in the Middle East.
