Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK (AOHR UK) invites you to a timely seminar and discussion concerning Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Lawyers from leading law firms, experts and campaigners will discuss the background of the decision, its effects in the present and future, and the role of Trump’s allies in the Arab world in encouraging him to take such a decision.
