September 13, 2022 | 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm
The Biden administration has moved on from the tempting prospect of negotiating a comprehensive Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. But elections in Israel, potential leadership succession for the Palestinian Authority, and the Abraham Accords regional peace agreements all have implications for the conflict going forward. Join Ambassador Dennis Ross in a conversation with former Palestinian negotiator Ghaith al-Omari about the current state of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
