"After the Gaza War and Israeli Elections: What Hope for Israeli-Arab Peace?" is the title of a lecture by political analyst Daniel Levy, a former Israeli government adviser, set for 4:30 p.m. Monday, March 2, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
Levy is a senior fellow and co-director of the Middle East Task Force at the New America Foundation and a senior fellow and director of the Prospects for Peace Initiative at the Century Foundation. He was a policy adviser to former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and a member of the negotiating team for the Israeli-Palestinian "Oslo B" agreement under Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. He also was a senior policy adviser to former Israeli Minister of Justice Yossi Beilin.
Levy served as the lead Israeli drafter of the Geneva Initiative, a joint Israeli-Palestinian effort that suggests a detailed model for a peace agreement. From 2003 to 2004, he worked as an analyst for the International Crisis Group Middle East Program.
The event is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Princeton Middle East Society.
