The Middle East Peace Process: Is the Two State Solution Vanishing?
Based on his own long experience dating from the Middle East Peace Conference in Madrid (1991) and seven years in Jerusalem as the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (2008-2015), ambassador (ret.) Robert Serry will address the central question: seventy years after UN Partition resolution 181, fifty years after Security Council resolution 242, and after President Trump’s announcement to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, is it still realistic today to expect the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to be resolved through a two-state solution? The consequences of a deepening one-state reality will also be addressed, as well as the dire situation in Gaza.
Tuesday 10 April, 8 pm
