Beyond the Humanitarian Crisis in Gaza: What now for Israel and Palestine?

Date/Time: 09/10/2014  11:00 - 14:00

Location: PRIO

Israel’s latest war against Gaza has brought renewed and unprecedented suffering to the Palestinian population. Most of the 2,100 Palestinians who were killed were civilians. Tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed along with much of the civilian infrastructure. This is the third time Israel and Hamas are locked in violent conflict in six years, and it is clear that these outbursts of violence do not produce any winners or a solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict. Only new political strategies and initiatives can prevent more human suffering in the near future. But is this reflected in the political thinking on either side? How has the war influenced public opinion about the conflict on both sides? What policy options exist for the Israeli and Palestinian leaderships? What are the viable alternatives?
