CIC National Capital (Ottawa): The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Is the Two State Solution Dead?
March 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDTFree
At this upcoming event of the CIC National Capital Branch’s Middle East Study Group, Jon Allen will briefly summarize the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict emphasizing elements that feed the two competing narratives that dominate relations between the two sides until today. He argues that despite what one hears from both Israelis and Palestinians, the status quo is not an option. He concludes by explaining why he believes the two state solution remains the only answer to the conflict and what needs to happen in order to achieve it.
Jon Allen is a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Canadian International Council and a Fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the University of Toronto. From 2006-10 he was Canada’s Ambassador to Israel and from 2012-16 he was Canada’s Ambassador to Spain.
