Both the United States and the European Union have designated Hamas as a terrorist organisation, and refused to engage with it. In this unique event, Alistair Crooke, founder of Conflicts Forum, organiser of US and European unofficial dialogues in 2005 with Hezbollah, Hamas and other Islamist movements and former adviser to European Union high representative Javier Solana, circumvents this ban by having a conversation with Usamah Hamdan, a member of Hamas's governing council, via a live satellite link to Beirut. The discussion will be followed by questions from the audience.
The talk will be filmed and broadcast live on Al Jazeera TV. If you are attending and would like further information about the filming, please call the Box Office on 020 7930 3647.
