Caroline Monahan ’16 invites you to attend:
J Street U at Wesleyan and Wes for Peace are excited to host Gershon
Baskin at Wesleyan this Tuesday, November 11th at 8 pm. Dr. Baskin
will be sharing his analysis of the Kerry Initiative’s failure, this
past summer’s violence in the region, and his vision for peace going
forward. Q&A and dessert reception to follow.
Gershon Baskin is an Israeli-American peace activist who has dedicated
his career to the pursuit of a dignified two-state solution between
Israel and Palestine that will bring justice and stability to the
region. Dr. Baskin was one of the back-channel negotiators between
Israel and Hamas who secured Gilad Shalit’s release from captivity in
2011 after he was abducted in the Gaza Strip five years earlier.
Previously, Dr. Baskin served as an advisor on the peace process to
Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin’s government.
This lecture is sponsored by the Allbritton Center for the Study of
Public Life, Government Department, College of Social Studies, Middle
Eastern Studies, Center for Jewish and Israel Studies, Muslim Students
Association and the Wesleyan Jewish Community.
