Levy, a journalist with Israeli newspaper Haaretz since 1982, has been covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in particular the occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, for over 20 years. He is a frank critic of Israel’s policies toward the Palestinians.

Mr. Levy will discuss the findings of his most recent book, The Punishment of Gaza, in which he tracks Israel’s progressive abandonment of diplomacy in favour of a policy of provocation and the exercise of raw military power. Gideon Levy’s address will be followed by a time of Q&A.

Full details of the national tour are available on the CPJME website.
