Diaspora Communities and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Jewish, Muslim, and Christian activism in the U.S. plays a critical role in shaping public opinion and U.S. policy with respect to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Israel’s military campaign in Gaza this past summer highlighted the increasingly important role of diaspora communities in influencing the narrative and hence the trajectory of the conflict. To analyze the diasporas’ leverage and influence, examine shifting trends within these communities with respect to the conflict, and to discuss U.S. policy implications, Critical Connections and Karuna Peacebuilding Center organized a panel discussion with Dr. Dov Waxman (Director, Middle East Studies, Northeastern University), Dr. Saud Anwar (mayor of South Windsor, CT and founder of the Jewish-Muslim Alliance) and Professor Emily Cury (Faculty, Emerson College) in Amherst on September 28, 2014.
