UK Event: The Past, Present, and Future of the Two-State Solution


Prior to 7th October, it had become increasingly popular to write off any hope for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Yet in the context of the war, the Biden administration put new energy into it. Why has the two-state proposal been around so long without being realised? Has it become impossible to achieve, as some claim? Is there really any alternative? And how does this relate to hopes for widening the peace between Israel and its Arab neighbours?
