Trade delegation mission to Israel and Palestine: profession reacts


I also want to clarify that I have the highest regard for UKTI having working with them for many years in many countries. They are a GREAT partner for RIBA and open many doors for architects. It is the timing of their proposed trip that I was critical of when it was pointed out to me by AJ as I was unaware of it. As chair of Women in Architecture I led a very successful mission with the British Council NENA programme for the Women@Work to Palestine 7 years ago and RIBA later signed and MOU in 2010 with their Engineers and Architects association to continue to work together and share good practice and experience. It was on that trip that our group could see at first hand the plight of our colleagues there and with that insight we want to continue to help our professional colleagues when there is a call for help and a call for justice for architectural practice and ethical standards. It is working with groups like this that we can get a better understanding of the humanitarian situation and learn how to act accordingly in a professional way.
