An On-line Symposium
Monday, June 29, 2020 at 17:00-19:00 Jerusalem time (GMT+3)
This event addresses the unique opportunities and challenges presented by COVID-19 for peacebuilding in Israel/Palestine and the region. The Corona pandemic has wreaked social and legal havoc across the globe. For Israelis and Palestinians, it has emerged during political crisis and looming threats of annexation. At the same time, the relative success of cross-border cooperation and joint efforts in East Jerusalem are worthy of attention. To what extent could a public health crisis enable warring nations to build on shared interests, the region’s resources and unite against a ‘common enemy’? Join us to hear insights from experts and practitioners on lessons learned from the pandemic.
