New America Foundation Panel with APN's Lara Friedman: 1/31: Peace for Israel and Palestine?

New America Foundation


Peace for Israel and Palestine?
Public Opinion 20 Years after Oslo

In collaboration with

The Arab American Institute.

As Secretary of State John Kerry's April deadline for a peace agreement approaches, a key concern is whether the Israeli and Palestinian publics are ready to support an agreement. Where do Israelis and Palestinians stand on key issues, and what kind of peace agreement do they want?

Twenty years after the signing of the Oslo Accords, Zogby Research Services examined these questions in its latest public opinion poll on Israeli and Palestinian attitudes toward the peace process. Please join the Arab American Institute and the New America Foundation's Middle East Task Force for the survey's public release and a discussion of its findings. The poll, conducted for the Sir Bani Yas Forum in the UAE, provides critical insights for today's peace negotiators as they seek a viable agreement that both the Israeli and Palestinian publics can support.
