Event Details

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict, while remote from everyday life in America, is often a subject of intense focus on college campuses, leaving many concerned about the discourse and conflict they will encounter at college.David Makovsky and Ghaith Al-Omari have made, separately or together, close to 200 campus visits around the country in the past few years to talk about Israel and the Israeli- Palestinian conflict, modeling respectful, thoughtful, and informed discourse that focuses on durable, realistic solutions. Longtime colleagues at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a Middle East-focused DC think tank, both have been intimately involved in the Israeli-Palestinian affairs for decades. They have served as inside practitioners and external analysts in different rounds of peace negotiations.

We invite concerned grandparents and parents of high school and college students to join us for this insightful discussion. David and Ghaith will present their insights from hundreds of on-campus encounters on the state of the discourse at colleges, their work, and how to engage in productive and reasonable conversations about a challenging, intricate topic.
