Auditorium Tilburg University
Power and Justice
From 2007 to 2013, Salam Fayyad was Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority. In that function, Fayyad, who studied in the United States and worked for the IMF in Washington, promoted the establishment of a Palestinian state at peace with Israel. His moderate and pragmatic approach resulted in opposition from both Hamas and Fatah. In his Nexus Masterclass, Fayyad will enter into a debate with the audience on the theme of ‘Power and Justice’.
Salam Fayyad on Power and Justice
“Do we have an innate notion of justice or is this a social construct?” In his grand speech, Salam Fayyad poses this question and searches for an answer with the help of philosophers and writers such as Plato, Thucydides, Camus, Foucault and Chomsky.
