PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi visited Amherst College yesterday to participate in a series of events.

Dr. Ashrawi gave a lecture entitled, “Palestine in Context: The Prospects of Peace,” in which she addressed the major structural, procedural and substantive flaws inherent in the “peace process,” and Israel’s destruction of the prospects for peace and stability with its flagrant violations of international law and Palestinian human rights.

Dr. Ashrawi also stressed the importance of immediate intervention from the international community and serious and effective accountability for Israel.

Dr. Ashrawi was also the guest speaker for Professor Adi Gordon’s class, “The History of Israel.”

Dr. Ashrawi concluded her trip to Amherst College by attending a dinner with faculty members and students.
