The Arab-Israeli Conflict: A Changing Policy for a Changing Conflict?


In the years since the United States formally adopted its "two-state" policy towards the Arab-Israeli conflict, the conflict has changed. The nature of the players on the Palestinian and Israeli sides of the conflict, as well as the publics that support them, have changed. Similar change can be observed in the Arab states that surround them and in the larger international community. However, despite these and other significant changes, we have seen surprisingly little change in US policy or approach towards the conflict. This roundtable will begin with a brief history of the conflict (its roots and key events) as well as a discussion of important changes in recent years to the conflict. Armed with this knowledge, participants will be tasked to propose realistic, coherent, and feasible alternatives to current US foreign policy towards the conflict.
