[ePalestine] New Left Project: The State of Play in Palestine: A Roundtable

New Left Project

The State of Play in Palestine: A Roundtable

Veterans of twenty years of empty negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians may too easily dismiss the current talks, led by US Secretary of State John Kerry, as simply more of the same. Yet they are occurring in a dramatically changed political environment. What are the implications for Palestine of the regional upheavals of the past few years? How sincere are Kerry and the EU in their apparent determination to secure an agreement? What would that settlement look like? And what other important trends are emerging that will shape the future trajectory of the conflict?

We've invited a panel of acute analysts and observers of the conflict to summarise the current state of play in Palestine, and where things are headed.

Contributing to the discussion are:

Norman Finklestein and Mouin Rabbani – co-authors of How to Solve the Israel-Palestine Conflict

Jon Elmer – journalist based in the occupied Palestinian territories

Alain Gresh – journalist and editor of Le Monde diplomatique

Adam Hanieh – senior lecturer at SOAS and author of Lineages of Revolt

Sam Bahour – Palestinian political commentator and business consultant
