The Middle East Peace Process: Can the Old Paradigms and Processes be Revived?
Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer, Lecturer and S. Daniel Abraham Visiting Professor of Middle East Policy Studies, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University; and former US Ambassador to Egypt and Israel
The Middle East Peace Process is burdened by a sense of disillusionment over the effectiveness of traditional paradigms and processes, particularly in light of the Palestinian statehood bid and the Arab Spring. The shifting political landscape has prompted considerable interest in new ways of resolving the conflict, and concerns about the impact of a continued impasse. The speaker will examine the consequences of inaction and consider alternative approaches that may lead to a peaceful resolution, while trying to understand whether the two-state paradigm and bilateral negotiations can be revived.
