After each MEPEACE.org Chat Workshop (an event taking place every second Sunday in MEPEACE.org Chat), we (the MEPEACE Dialogue Team, that is Cigdem Yilmazer, Clara Singer, Jessica de Souza, Johanna Silverthorne, Tanya Kasim and myself) open a dedicated 'after-event discussion', in order to give the workshop participants and other interested members the chance to elaborate on their points raised during the workshop, share new ideas on the respective topic with others, and discuss with others about the topic.
Information about our event which successfully took place on 25 July can be found here:
Please also note that a detailed summary of the event will be attached to this discussion soon!
The leading questions were:
What have Palestinian and Jewish diaspora groups contributed to the struggle?
How has the role of each of the two diasporas changed over time?
How can the two diasporas contribute to the peace-making process?
During the 90 minutes of live discussion in the MEPEACE.org Chatroom, the participants, together with the moderators, already addressed these questions to a large extent. However, feel free to add anything here. But please stick to the topic
The Role of Diaspora in the Middle East Conflict
The Dialogue Team won't interfere in this discussion - however, take into account that 'normal' moderation (as in every other discussion) applies - so please observe the MEPEACE.org Guidelines.
We are looking forward to your comments and opinions!
