Phyllis Bennis, an internationally acclaimed writer and leader in the global peace movement, visits Bellarmine University to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Phyllis Bennis, an internationally acclaimed writer and leader in the global peace movement, visits Bellarmine University to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Tuesday, April 16, 2013, at 7 p.m. This free event in the George G. Brown Center's Frazier Hall is open to the public.

Bennis is a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, where she directs the New Internationalism Project. She has been a writer, analyst and activist on Middle East and United Nations issues for many years, appearing regularly on national and international media.

She is the author of eight books, including "Understanding the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict: A Primer (2009," "Understanding the US-Iran Crisis: A Primer (2009)" and "Ending the US War in Afghanistan: A Primer (2010)." She has been featured in numerous documentary films on the Iraq war, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the United Nations and other issues.

This event was arranged by a group of Bellarmine faculty members, along with Bellarmine's Quality Enhancement Plan and the Student Government Association.

“Ms Bennis’s talk will promote deeper understanding of the obstacles to peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," said Dr. Curtis Bergstrand, an associate professor of sociology and one of the event's organizers. "She will argue for a new U.S. policy in the Middle East that respects the rights and aspirations of all peoples in the region and fosters movement toward a just peace.”
