Peace and Beyond in the Middle East at the Clinton Global Initiative
From the Clinton Global Initiative Meetings, we join the plenary session "Peace and Beyond in the Middle East." Drawing on re-invigorated leadership in the Middle East and internationally, hope is re-emerging among parties on all sides that a just and comprehensive peace can be agreed, bringing an end to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Assuming the peace process continues to advance, this session will examine the contours and realities of a peaceful Middle East. What would the region look like? What would be the needs of the Israeli, Palestinian, and neighboring communities? Would they have access to education and economic opportunity? What are the steps that can be taken today by CGI members, notably the private sector, to help address those needs and prepare for, and uplift, a peaceful Middle East? Panel members include Prince Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa, President Bill Clinton, Salam Fayyad and Shimon Peres.
