The speakers will offer their perspectives on the current state of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. They will consider whether the two state solution is still a viable option for resolving the conflict, and whether or not there is any alternative. They will also reflect on the impact of the Palestinian issue on regional politics as well as the influence of relations between the US and Israel on the peace process.
