In conversation with H.E. Amb. Husam Zomlot, Head of the Palestinian Mission to the UK

Join us to discuss scenarios and plans for the ‘day after’ in Gaza and the implications for the future of Palestinian statehood.

Partner and major corporate event Invitation only
19 March 2024 — 11:45AM TO 1:00PM
Chatham House

In the aftermath of 7 October, huge portions of Gaza’s infrastructure have been destroyed. It is estimated that over 30,000 Palestinians have died, and over 90% of Gazans have been displaced.

Against this backdrop, understanding what a ‘day after’ looks like for Palestine, Israel, and the region, is becoming increasingly important. In addition to dealing with the immediate devastation in Gaza, substantive discussions on what a political process for the resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict might look like have started. While a plan is yet to be outlined to offer a path to a sustainable peace agreement, the US, Palestine and others in the region and internationally are making it a focus.

Please join us for this critical discussion covering:

  • How might a ceasefire be achieved in the short-term to facilitate ‘day after’ plans in the longer-term?
  • What steps is the Palestinian Government taking for the ‘day after’?
  • What does a realistic workplan look like for Gaza?
  • What support is needed to achieve it?
  • What could a political settlement look like for the Israel-Palestine conflict?

This event will be held under the Chatham House rule.
