Breaking the Silence at ULB: Israeli Soldiers, what are the options ?

The Cercle du Libre Examen (ULB), together with the Studiekring Vrij Onderzoek, has the great pleasure to invite you to its conference with Breaking the Silence.

BREAKING THE SILENCE, one of Israel’s most internationally lauded NGOs, was established in Jerusalem in 2004 by Israel Defense Forces veterans to document testimonies of Israeli soldiers who have served in the Occupied Territories.

We will be discussing the draft of Israeli citizens in the Israel Defense Forces, the choice the soldiers have, if at all, and last but not least, occupation, from the soldiers' perspective.

The speakers will be:

--- Eric David ---

* Professor of International Law and a specialist in Humanitarian Law

* President of the Belgian Red Cross Consultative Forum.

--- Dana Golan ---

* Former Executive Director of Breaking the Silence from January 2009 until February 2013.

The debate will be followed by a discussion with the audience, where you will be invited to ask your questions.
