Emerging Out of the Violence

Shlomo Ben-Ami on Ceasefire Plans to Final Status Negotiations

Please join us for a conversation with former Israeli Foreign Minister and Minister of Public Security Shlomo Ben-Ami. Ben-Ami led peace negotiations with the PLO under Prime Minister Ehud Barak, culminating in the Camp David Summit. He is visiting the United States to discuss the shortcomings of the Annapolis process, how to address them, and the broader regional picture.

Given the Israeli-Palestinian violence of the past few weeks, Ben-Ami will address the "how to's" of a ceasefire plan, the ongoing security dilemmas, management of the Hamas-Fatah-Israel triangle, a return to permanent status negotiations, and the role that United States and the international community needs to play in all these stages. He will also share his insights regarding the uncertain regional context in the Middle East with respect to the role of Egypt, Iran, Syria, the Arab League Initiative, and the requirements for brokering peace in the region.
