United Nations Forum to Mark Fifty Years of Occupation
29-30 June 2017, New York, NY



    To mark fifty years of the Israeli occupation that began in 1967, the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People convened a two-day forum at the United Nations Headquarters in New York in June 2017. A day-long event entitled "Ending the Occupation: The Path to Independence, Justice, and Peace for Palestine" was held on 29 June, followed by a civil society forum entitled "Ending the Occupation: Creating the Space for Human Rights, Development, and a Just Peace"on 30 June. The forum was organised in accordance with General Assembly resolutions 71/20 and 71/21 of 30 November 2016. It brought together international experts, including from the State of Palestine and Israel, representatives of the diplomatic community, civil society, as well as academics and students to discuss the ongoing occupation in a series of moderated interactive panels. The forum was open to the public and the media.
