This event brings together one of Palestine's best known educational theorists and practitioners, Munir Fasheh in conversation with leading political economist of the Middle East Mayssoun Sukarieh. Drawing upon Munir Fasheh's decades of experience in community learning in Palestine and across the global South, they will explore a radical tradition of popular education developed by peoples engaged in struggles against colonialism.

Munir Fasheh taught Mathematics and Physics at Birzeit University in occupied Palestine. Turning his attention to pedagogical theory and practice, he founded the Tamer Institute for Community Education in Rammallah and later the Arab Education Forum at Harvard University's Middle Eastern Studies Centre. For several decades, Fasheh has worked with research networks across the global South researching and developing practices of community learning.

Mayssoun Sukarieh is Senior Lecturer in Middle Eastern Studies at King's College London where she is co-convener of the MA degree in Political Economy of the Middle East. She received her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, and a MA and BA from the American University of Beirut. Since then, she has lectured in anthropology and development studies in universities around the Arab region (American University of Beirut; American University of Cairo) and the US (Columbia and Brown Universities). She recently published 'Decolonizing education: a view from Palestine: an interview with Munir Fasheh' (Vol. 29, 2019) in International Studies in Sociology of Education .
