Xavier Abu Eid will describe the recent UN resolution granting Palestine non-member observer status in the UN. He will discuss what it means for Palestine, its pros and cons, and the strategies involved both in making the bid, and in the larger picture of justice for occupied Palestine. Please bring your questions about this historical decision!


Xavier Abu Eid is a political scientist, advisor to the Palestinian Authority negotiations team, and a member of the PLO Public Diplomacy Task Force.
