The Oslo process is exhausted and a viable two-state outcome is slipping out of reach. Europe is failing to fundamentally challenge the worsening situation on the ground, which is storing up future instability and threatens European interests. An unresolved conflict will only continue to inhibit Europe’s prospects for deepening relations with both Israel and Palestine, and will represent an ongoing failure of the international rules-based order. The EU should craft a new peacemaking paradigm that puts deoccupation and equal rights front and centre.
In this debate Hugh Lovatt, Patrycja Sasnal and Konstanty Gebert will discuss how the EU should act to face the unresolved conflict? What tools do European policymakers have to craft a new, forward-looking vision that can stimulate positive transformation on both sides of the conflict and help bring about a resolution?
