Prospects for Middle East peace to be explored during Shoreline CC program Feb. 15


The Global Affairs Center at Shoreline Community College, directed by Edmonds resident Larry Fuell, will present a program, “Palestinians, Israelis, Jerusalem: Peace or Continued Conflict?” Thursday, Feb. 15 from 7-8:30 p.m. in Shoreline CC’s 9000 Building, Room 9208.

The speaker will be Dr. Joel S. Migdal, Robert F. Philip Professor of International Studies in Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington.

Recently, U.S. President Donald Trump announced the intention to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Will this further inflame the conflict, especially between Israelis and Palestinians? Dr. Migdal has been writing about the Middle East for more than 30 years, and he spent the last two years in that region. He will put the Trump decision on Jerusalem in the larger context of the realignment that has been occurring in the larger Middle East, reflected in the brutal Syrian Civil War.

The program is open to the public and free but registration is requested by clicking here. Parking on campus in the evening is free.
