Fresh Thinking for Old Problems: Comparing Conflicts to Advance Israeli-Palestinian Peace
A New Publication of the Mitvim Institute in cooperation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Israel by Dr. Dahlia Scheindlin
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is often considered uniquely intractable – but other long-standing conflicts face similar situations. While no two cases are identical, none are completely unique. Dr. Dahlia Scheindlin’s in-depth research into conflicts in the Balkans, Azerbaijan/Armenia, and Cyprus, juxtaposed with deep knowledge of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, yields a wide range of comparable insights and valuable contrasts. This study, carried out in cooperation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Israel, reveals an abundance of areas for comparison, including diplomacy, negotiations, political frameworks for resolution, core conflict issues, third parties, civil society and peace activism, and public dynamics.
