At a Glance

From political tension to waves of violence, the prospect for peace in the Middle East remains out of reach. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has affected the region for over 70 years, despite international efforts to find a resolution. Learn how the fighting began, the ways in which the situation has changed over time and why communities on both sides remain insecure. Alan Dowty, former Chair of International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, will analyze the complex confrontation between Arab nations and Israel that has dominated much of the modern Middle East and address the current state of affairs.
