Discussion: “The Abraham Accords: Contribution or Obstacle to Middle East Peace?”
March 17, 2021 | 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
In 2020, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Sudan normalized their relations with Israel, the first Arab countries to do so since Jordan in 1994. What does this mean for the future of the Israeli-Palestinian relations? Will the Abraham Accords improve or worsen the prospects for Middle East Peace? And what should the Biden administration do in the aftermath of the agreements? Israeli scholar Nir Boms and Saudi-American researcher Najat Al-Saied will discuss.
Sponsored by the Duke Program in American Grand Strategy. Co-sponsored by Jewish Life at Duke, Duke Department of Political Science, and the Triangle Institute for Security Studies.
