Event Description

We are proud to invite you to the third and last of three workshops on a future 'Palestinian State'.


After our successful series on 'The Jewish State', several members have suggested we should follow this up with a series on a (future) 'Palestinian State - Vision and Reality'. In our previous Online Peace Talks events we have already discussed that issue to an extent - the Chat Workshop environment, however, gives us the opportunity to discuss a future Palestinian state in a more constructive and organized way.

While the Israelis already have their state, the Palestinians still dream of their own independent realm. By many, a two-state solution is seen as the only viable perspective for peaceful co-existence. Although the Palestinians are currently successfully building the framework that will enable them to govern an independent state soon, there are still questions as to whether the Palestinian citizens are really ready to accept the 'State of the Jews' as their neighbour, and, additionally, whether a way can be found to unify the Palestinians (unify the Fatah-led West Bank and the Hamas-led Gaza Strip) in the near future. Furthermore, would the end of the occupation also involve the end of Jewish settlements?

Therefore, there is a lot to discuss - and, after our first two workshops on that topic (on Jan 2 and Jan 16), in which we talked about 'the Palestinians and their long way to independence' and 'Palestinian state-building', respectively, we will now (due to recent events) analyze the situation of a 'future Palestinian state in the light of the changes in the Arab world'. We will discuss in what ways the bottom-up revolution in large parts of the Arab world affect and influence the Palestinians' efforts towards an own state - and with that, peace.

The leading questions will be the following:


How do the upheavals in the Arab world at large influence the Palestinian dream of a state?


What role does 'Palestine' play in the Arab revolution?


In your view, do the upheavals facilitate or hamper the creation of a Palestinian state?




Please note that the event will start on Sunday, 13 March at 20.00 Jerusalem time, in the MEPEACE Chat.
