Dr. Anat Matar is a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at Tel Aviv University and Chair of the Israeli Action Committee for the Palestinian Prisoners. She has recently published (in collaboration with Adv. Abeer Baker from Haifa University) an edited volume of essays, entitled Threat: Palestinian Political Prisoners in Israel (London: Pluto Press, 2011). Matar has been a Leftist activist for many years, in particular in the refusal movement, in “Open Doors”, an activist group against administrative detention, and in “Who Profits?”, a research group exposing the Israeli Occupation industry.
Matar was invited to Prague by the Palestinian Club in the Czech Republic. There were two lectures which took place in co-operation with the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) Czech Republic group, and the Association of Political Science Students of Charles University Prague. Anat Matar spoke on the issue of Palestinian political prisoners and land confiscation; and on the impact of the recent Israeli elections and the role of the international community.
