On March 6th, 2022, the UCLA Luskin Center for History and Policy, in partnership with the USC Casden Institute for the Study of the Jewish Role in American Life and the UCLA Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studies, hosted the final installment of a three-part series focused on “Breaking the Deadlock” in Israel-Palestine.
The aim of this series is to bring together leading scholars, thinkers, and policy-makers—each with different affiliations and visions for the future—to put forward contemporary resolutions against an otherwise stagnate Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This conversation included Yossi Beilin, former Israeli cabinet minister and architect of the Oslo Accords, and Hiba Husseini, Palestinian lawyer and peace negotiator. It was moderated by Prof. Dov Waxman.
Beilin and Husseini recently released a detailed plan for confederacy in Israel-Palestine, which they have presented to the United Nations, United States leadership, and numerous Israeli and Palestinian leaders. They discuss their vision for the plan’s implementation in the context of historical peace efforts.
