We are very happy to announce that on May 11th UNICEF Student team Maastricht and Students for Justice in Palestine are hosting a special event on the situation of Palestinian children.

Join us for what is going to be a really interesting talk from two experts on the situation of children’s rights in the region.

Mieke Zagt, Director of Tadamun, a partner organisation of Defence for Children International Palestine (DCIP) will present the situation from a children’s rights perspective focussing on the military system of arrest and imprisonment and Palestinian children’s lack of access to justice.

Charlotte Kates, International Coordinator of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network will analyse case studies of child arrest and imprisonment and the impact on children e.g. in terms of mental health.

After their presentations there will be plenty of time for a Q&A round in which you can ask all of your questions!

We are really looking forward to an evening looking at this important topic and learning more with you all about the underrepresented case of Palestinian children. If you have any quesitons of course, just comment in the event or message us and we’ll get right back to you 🙂

See you in the Feestzaal , Law Faculty at 6.30pm on Thursday May 11th!
