Over the course of its 78 years of existence, the United Nations has played a significant role in the Palestinian Question. The UN General Assembly Resolution 181 of 1947 on the partition of Palestine is one of the most consequential events in the modern history of Palestine. This resolution is widely regarded as the catalyst for the tragedy endured by the Palestinian people and the broader Arab region, as it enabled the formation of the State of Israel to the detriment of the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination. In view of this significant UN role in Palestine, and to mark the annual United Nations Day on 24 October, the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies is organizing a panel on the role of the United Nations in Palestine, on Tuesday 24 October, between 12 and 2 p.m. The Symposium will feature distinguished scholars who have worked in the United Nations, including Michael Lynk, the former United Nations Special Rapporteur for the human rights situation in the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967.
