Following the Israeli-Palestinian ceasefire, the expert panel will consider whether this will mean a lasting truce in Gaza or if we can expect a similar conflict in a few years. The speakers will examine the role of Egypt in brokering the deal and Tony Laurance, recently returned from Gaza, will reflect on the humanitarian impact of the conflict and assess the outlook for reconstruction.
