Dr. Sara Roy, Harvard University, Center for Middle Eastern Studies, the expert on the political-economic and humanitian crisis in Gaza, speaks on:
Gaza de-developed: Policy or collateral damage?
18 januari 2012, 20:00, Groningen: Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, Academiegebouw, Broerplein 5
19 januari 2012, 19:00, Amsterdam: Universiteit van Amsterdam, Oudemanhuispoort 4-6, zaal F0.01
Roy discusses what brought about the economical crisis in Gaza. Was it an unavoidable result of the conflict between Israël and the Palestinians or rather Israel's intention to create poverty and dependence?
Roy: The people of Gaza know they have been abandoned. Some told me the only time they felt hope was when they were being bombed, because at least then the world was paying attention.
After the lecture you'll be able to buy Roy's most recent book (only currency, price about €35,-): Hamas and civil society in Gaza (2011).
