Dr. Ramzy Baroud’s delivery of the 2019 Hisham Sharabi Memorial Lecture addresses the necessity of re-articulating the Palestinian narrative, based on the aspirations of the Palestinian people.

White argues that is urgent to plot a course to avoid the mistakes of the past—to create a real way forward in Palestine.
