UPF presents Umeå University’s own Gunilla Fallqvist, who will hold a lecture about her experiences as a peace observer with the Ecumenical Peace Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel. With their presence they strive to bring calm in the region and promote respect between the populations. Free entrance for all members or a one time fee of 20SEK. This lecture will be held in Swedish.

WHEN? 21th of October, 12.15-13.00

WHERE? Lecture Hall D, Lindellhallen


To start of our Israel & Palestine lecture, UPF, together with UR, will be screening the Oscar nominated documentary Gatekeepers, FOR FREE! Mixing interviews with old archival footage, it tells the story of Shin Bet, the Israeli internal security service.

WHEN? 16th of October, 17.00-19.00

WHERE? Lecture Hall F, The Humanities Building

Of course there will be fika at the lecture, and snack at the documentary evening. Also, since the screening is a Thursday, we’ll all be going to Skogis afterwards! Thursday night pea-soup night!
