Lubnah Shomali discusses BADIL's comprehensive, rights-based approach to the Palestinian-Israeli so-called conflict, and the applicability of international humanitarian and human rights law on forced population transfer, refugees, and internally displaced persons (IDPs).

She spoke recently at the public library in Lincoln, MA. As she explains, displaced Palestinians have certain rights by law. Among them are the right of return and the right to live in dignity pending return. Israel refuses to recognize any such rights.

Born in Palestine but raised in the US, Lubnah and her family relocated to her West Bank hometown in summer 2008. The was the International Relations Officer for the Beit Sahour Municipality before joining BADIL in 2012. Her AB and MBA are from University of Michigan.
