One Justice Association – OJ has organized a roundtable discussion in Istanbul on November 18, 2018, with Madam Clare Short, former Minister of International Development of UK, and Madam Luisa Morgantini, former vice-chairman of the European Parliament. The discussion, headed by OJ’s executive director in Istanbul Hassan Imran, began by introducing the guests of honor and then the floor was open for discussion on topics ranging from human rights to environmental issues. Guests included lawyers, activists, and students of political science who shared their insights on the issues of conflict and the future of international politics.
The Palestinian and Israeli conflict issue was a particular focus of the discussions due to Madam Morgantini’s direct participation in the Palestinian protests against the Israeli forces in which she was injured.
The discussion was concluded with a general agreement of youth empowerment, taking joint action against human rights violations, and to strengthen the international legal system by means of cooperation and encouragement between international organizations, human rights activists, academicians, and students alike.
