Webster Leiden hosts Middle East ambassadors

Israeli Ambassador Haim Divon spoke to Webster students on the history of the peace process and reasons for its continued failure.

The International Relations Department at Webster University’s campus in Leiden, the Netherlands, welcomed the Ambassadors of Palestine and Israel on consecutive weeks in February to the Middle East Studies class.

The Palestinian Ambassador, Nabil Abuznaid, discussed the humanitarian situation of the Palestinian refugees, the international recognition of the Palestinian “state,” and the peace process.

The Israeli Ambassador, Haim Divon, explained the history of the peace process and reasons for its continued failure. He also answered questions about Israeli borders, the separation wall, and the fate of the Palestinian refugees.

Their visits created a special opportunity for Webster students to hear firsthand from ambassadors immersed in these issues. Webster Leiden thanks Ambassadors Abuznaid and Divon for taking the time to visit Webster and speak to students.
