As US Secretary of State John Kerry attempts to restart the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, the speakers - three members of The Elders, a group of independent leaders founded by Nelson Mandela - will discuss what they believe needs to be done to save the two-state solution, 20 years after the Oslo Accords.

They will consider US efforts, the Arab Peace Initiative, the role of the European Union, the implications of Israeli settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian territory, and the impact of regional events.
