Trump’s “Deal of the Century”

The Trump administration’s recently proposed Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, dubbed “the Deal of the Century,” offers a plan to resolve the decades-old conflict all the while declaring Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel. Although it calls for an eventual Palestinian state, the Palestinian leadership expectedly rejected the plan. This peace plan has sparked controversy from global leaders, who claim that it allows annexation of Palestinian lands, ignores the right of return for refugees, and runs contrary to international law. Turkey was among the countries who opposed the plan, reiterating its support for a negotiated two-state solution. As the Palestinian Authority cut all relations with the U.S. and Israel including security cooperation, there are worries about increased tensions in the region.

On February 11, The SETA Foundation at Washington DC will host an event to discuss the Trump administration’s “Deal of the Century.” The panel will discuss the details of the plan, its prospects for peace, and its implications should it come to fruition. Please kindly join us for a timely expert panel discussion on these recent developments.
