Webinar – U.S. Policy & Breaking the Israel-Palestine Status Quo
You are invited to a Webinar conversation with Ambassador Scot Marciel.
Myanmar’s Struggle for Peace and Democracy
Almost three decades from the signing of the Declaration of Principles between Israel and the PLO at the White House, the two state solution looks to be impossible. How can US policy toward peacemaking be reimagined to promote the rights and security of both Israelis and Palestinians and lay the foundation for a just political solution?

Her research focus is on Palestine-Israel peace, the use of international legal mechanisms by political movements, and U.S. foreign policy in the region.
