The event will be organized as a panel discussion including three parliamentarians - María Arena (European Union), Mandla Mandela (South Africa), Betty McCollum (United States) - to support the attainment of the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people and promote a just resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in peace and security. The event will highlight how efforts within national constituencies have translated into concrete actions at the national and international levels and will identify impediments to moving forward.

Participants will consist of Committee Members and the panelist parliamentarians. All Member States, intergovernmental and civil society organizations as well as the public and media will be invited to follow the event and pose questions. While participation in the virtual platform will be limited to UN Member and Observer States as well as the panelist parliamentarians, the general public can send their questions via the Committee Facebook page, Twitter account , the email and WhatsApp (+1 646 421 0579)
