Since 1967 the Arab-Israeli confrontation has been shaped by both war-making and peacemaking. What have we learned about the balance of power, the internal politics of the main actors, and the role of outside powers? What lessons from negotiations—both successful and not—can be applied today’s situation? Join us as four seasoned observers of the Arab-Israeli conflict share their views on these and other matters.

Presented by the Joseph and Alma Gildenhorn Middle East Forum of the Middle East Program at the Wilson Center.
