This project aims to create a platform for constructive and frank dialogue among Israelis and Palestinians and other stakeholders designed to improve Israeli-Palestinian relations.
This debate would deal not only with the shape of a lasting settlement of the conflict but would also look for ways of promoting better Israeli-Palestinian relations in the period leading up to such a settlement.
The project examines what worked in the past and why it ultimately failed to lead to final agreement, in order to learn usable lessons from that experience.
We will also look at what has changed in Israel, among the Palestinians and in the regional and international contexts, to establish what new possibilities might exist, including those which have emerged from changing circumstances in the region.
As part of this process, we will consult leading thinkers and practitioners on the conflict. Our findings will be embodied in research and briefing papers.
Please note, this is a continuation of a previous project named Regional Approaches to the Middle East Peace Process.
