Peace after Gaza: A New Framework for a Changing Landscape

Featuring:

  • Dr. Salam Fayyad, former prime minister, Palestinian Authority and distinguished statesman, the Atlantic Council
  • Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs, The United Nations

In conversation with:

  • Walter Isaacson, president and CEO, the Aspen Institute

The discussion will assess the current avenues for re-engagement and the roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders in the wake of the Gaza conflict and in the context of the broader strategic landscape of the region. The conversation will touch on not only the short term issues such as relief and recovery, but also the broader landscape for moving beyond a ceasefire to a lasting framework for stability that recognizes the ceasefire as an

opportunity, not a certainty. This conversation will engage all the stakeholders to move beyond the immediacy of the ceasefire to the broader concerns of relief, recovery, and redevelopment with attention to the critical security needs of Egypt, Israel, and Jordan, and the importance of building a pathway for pluralism. Key questions for discussion include:

  • Who will govern Gaza?
  • How do you create a viable institutional framework for governance in Gaza under the Palestinian Authority?
  • What is an appropriate role for the international community in the short, medium, and long term regarding relief, recovery, and redevelopment?
  • How do you incentivize the private sector to engage in this evolving landscape?
  • What are the roles and responsibilities of regional players, such as Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey?

Please join us for a discussion on the challenges on the pathway to peace in the current strategic landscape, and the potential to build a pathway to pluralism despite the shifting sands in the region.

A light lunch will be served at 11:45 am.
