We are happy to invite you to a discussion about the latest developments and perspectives of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

How did the upheavals in the Arab world so for affect the conflict and the prospects for a solution? What will happen on the international diplomatic level in 2012? Don’t miss the opportunity to discuss these and other questions with our high level Israeli guest.
