No End in Sight? Prospects for Peace and Justice in Israel-Palestine

The dramatic escalation of violence in Israel and Palestine should prompt not only horror, grief, and dismay, but also reflection and action toward lasting peace and justice.

This virtual panel will provide expert perspectives on past and future prospects for peace and justice in Israel and Palestine. The event will include a moderated discussion with members of the audience.

The goal of this conversation is to deepen understanding by creating a space for dialogue between scholarly experts and individuals with a variety of perspectives and experiences. Our conversation will center humanity and the possibility of future repair, and encourage good faith participation, while also recognizing the trauma and grief that so many in our community are experiencing. Our ability to speak and learn is accompanied by a responsibility to listen and respect human life. We will stand firmly against any attempt to intimidate, threaten, or harass any member of our community, as we continue to seek possibilities for peace and restorative justice.
