In 2017 we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War. Since 1967, Israel has occupied the West Bank, as well as the Gaza Strip until 2005, and annexed the Golan Heights and East Jerusalem. The negotiations between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation attempting to resolve the conflict came to a standstill in 2014. This has moved a two-state solution into the distant future.
What repercussions do 50 years of occupation have on Israeli policies and society? Has the Israeli army changed? What is the role of national religious forces and the settlers? Does the Israeli peace movement still have appreciable support among the population? And what do these developments mean for the future of a two-state solution?
We are looking forward to discussing these and other questions with you and our experts.
