Two States or One? Rethinking the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
Monday, November 1
RSVP for November 1
The idea of the partition of Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state began with the Peel Plan in 1937, continued with the UN resolution 181 in 1947 and constituted the basis for all peace negotiations ever since. But in recent years more voices can be heard both on the right and the left who believe that the two-state solution is no longer viable. Panelists will discuss the viability of the two state solution, as well as the alternatives, including how one bi-national state might look:
- Omri Boehm (New School for Social Research)
- Yael Aronoff (Michigan State University)
- Saliba Sarsar (Monmouth University)
