Seminar: How Palestine/Israel and Middle Eastern politics impact on schools

Seminar: How Palestine/Israel and Middle Eastern politics impact on schools with Professor Paul Rogers – International Peace Studies Dept. Bradford University.

A twilight session for school leaders has been arranged to address current issues as part of our work on the Stand up, Speak out, Make a Difference peer education programme, in partnership work with the International Peace Studies department, Bradford University.

Paul Rogers is a Professor at Peace Studies, University of Bradford. He is Open Democracy's international-security editor. Professor Rogers also writes a monthly briefing for the Oxford Research Group. He has agreed to lead on a discussion to share his sense of current issues with regard to the situation in Palestine/Israel in particular and hear what issues schools might be facing when managing the impact this may have on students.

This session is part of a consultation process with school staff that Diversity and Cohesion are undertaking in order to inform the planning and content for staff CPD and a teaching resource to be produced in collaboration with the University of Bradford in addressing controversial issues.

The session will take place on Tuesday 4th November 2014 5.30pm at Future House. Please contact alina.khan@bradford.gov.uk if you would like to attend the session. This session is free and will be on a first come first served basis as there are only limited places available.
