The TAU Trust in the UK brought the vibrancy and excellence of TAU to London in February in a series of public workshops showcasing some of the most exciting research currently being carried out on campus.


This one-day, intellectual “tour de force” featured five world-class academics from the University who gave in-depth lectures in subjects that ranged from the intricacies of the brain to the complexities of big data; from the rapidly evolving political situation in the Middle East to legal and social justice in Israeli society.


Audience members enthusiastically asked questions and expressed their in ideas in Q&A sessions after each talk.


Prof. Asher Susser from TAU's Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies led a panel discussion on the Arab Spring and its impact on Israel with panelists Daniel Levy, a member of the European Council on Foreign Relations, and Daniella Peled from the Institute for War and Peace Reporting. The discussion was moderated by Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland. In attendance was Israeli Ambassador Daniel Taub who congratulated Tel Aviv University on its many achievements.


Due to popular demand, Prof. Susser gave an additional impromptu talk for event participants who wanted an even more comprehensive analysis of the Middle Eastern political arena.


"It was exhilarating to see how people engaged with the TAU speakers and the material," said David Levin, Chairman of the TAU Trust in Great Britain.
