70 YEARS TO 1948: 70 YEARS TO 1948: WHAT HAS CHANGED IN ISRAELI AND PALESTINIAN POLITICS?

The 15th of May this year marks 70 years to a conflicting date. It is a symbol of the ongoing tangled Israeli-Palestinian conflict: the Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe) on the one hand, and the establishment of the State of Israel on the other hand. The two speakers -- a Palestinian scholar and an Israeli scholar -- offer critical new insights on the emerging trends within Palestinian and Israeli politics and societies and their impact on the prospects of peace.
