Director's Breakfast Briefing

Towards a Palestinian State: Regional and International Repercussions of the UN Vote

Chatham House, London


Dr Ibrahim Souss, Professor of Political Science and President of the Geneva Foundation for Governance and Public Policies


Dr Ibrahim Souss will review the possible political scenarios that could play out after the UN vote on Palestinian nationhood this September. What will be the implications for Palestine, Israel and security and peace in the Middle East? What has been the impact of the Arab Spring on the democratic surge in Palestine, and how does this link to the bid for nationhood? Dr Souss will speak about the makings of a new strategic axis in the Middle East, taking into account recent developments between Egypt and Israel, and how this will affect Palestine and regional power politics. 

Attendance is strictly by invitation only.

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
