Six Olive Tree alumni in leadership positions in Israel and Palestine return to City University London to share their experiences and prospects of making a change in the region.

Chair:

Lyse Doucet, BBC Presenter and Chief International Correspondent

Rosemary Hollis, Director of the Olive Tree Programme and Professor of Middle East Policy Studies

Join us and our alumni - 3 from Israel and 3 from Palestine - to hear first-hand about their experiences back home, after graduation, working in public and third sector organisations to alter the reality that frames their lives.

After graduating from City University London many of the Olive Tree Programme's alumni go to work in influential roles. An Olive Tree Alumna, Stav Shaffir, was recently elected as Israel's youngest Member of the Knesset. Among the organisations that will be featured on this one of a kind evening are Peace Now, B'tselem and UNDP.
