Alice Panepinto hosts event on the Khan al Ahmar school demolition case

Can Law Stop the Demolition of a Bedouin School in the West Bank?
Spotlight on al-Khan al-Ahmar

The planned demolition of the only school in the Bedouin village of al-Khan al-Ahmar, West Bank (oPt) is in the hands of the Israeli Supreme Court. This school is one of many Palestinian public and private structures targeted by demolition orders as part of an Israeli policy to transfer and resettle Bedouins. If the demolition goes ahead, community life will suffer a severe blow, adding to the existing vulnerability and insecurity of the village. But can the law help save the school, preserve al-Khan al-Ahmar and protect these Palestinian Bedouin?

Join Mr Eid Abu Khamis from al-Khan al-Ahmar, Adv. Shlomo Lecker representing the community in this case, and Ms Angela Godfrey from Jahalin Solidarity for an update from the field. Dr Mazen Masri (City University), Dr Mezna Qato (Cambridge University), Mr Dario Rossi D’Ambrosio (UN Fellow), Mr Alon Cohen-Lifshitz (Bimkom), Ms Grazia Careccia (independent legal consultant) and Mr Ardi Imseis (Cambridge University/Palestine Yearbook of International Law) will provide an analysis and discussion of the key themes.
