Prospects for a solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict, with David Turner

This talk will review the origins of the Israel-Palestine conflict.


This talk will review the origins of the Israel-Palestine conflict and the reasons why the international effort for a two-state solution based on the Oslo agreement of 1993 has failed. The causes for the failure of Oslo are largely in the agreement itself: the difficult issues were all postponed to a later date and, crucially, there was no prohibition on Israel continuing to expand its settlements. The settlement project may now have gone beyond the point of no return, removing the possibility of a meaningful Palestinian state. Paradoxically, this opens the door for more radical solutions to be considered. The speaker will outline the ethical and practical case for a single binational state in Israel-Palestine with equal rights for both peoples.
