Ambassador Abdulhadi attended a dinner with Professor John Dugard, along with a number of other prominent attendees including Anthony Albanese MP, Maria Vamvakinou MP, Senator Lee Rhiannon, Senator Gavin Marshall, Senator Janet Rice, Senator Claire Moore, and Julian Hill MP.

Professor Dugard, former UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Palestine and Judge on the International Court of Justice, made an engaging speech on the topics of the applicability of international law to Israel/Palestine and the criteria for an apartheid system, demonstrating that the system in Israel/Palestine fulfills these criteria. 

The speech was followed by a question and answer session that covered topics such as the future of the Two-State Solution. 

The dinner was hosted by the Australia Palestine Advocacy Network (APAN), who did an excellent job in organising the event.
