The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and the Israeli Perception of ‘No Partner’ for Peace: An insight into the Israeli political mind


Thanks to the generosity of the Atkin Foundation, ICSR is offering young leaders from Israel and the Arab world the opportunity to come to London for a period of four months, producing a research paper as the result of their work. The purpose of the fellowship is to provide young leaders from Israel and the Arab world with an opportunity to develop their ideas on how to further peace and understanding in the Middle East through research, debate and constructive dialogue in a neutral political environment.

Yael Patir, from Tel Aviv, Israel used her time in London during spring 2011 to examine the Israeli-Palestinian peace process with a focus on the relationship between the government, policy and public opinion in Israel. Yael’s paper gives a unique insight into the current Israeli mindset, by looking at policy speeches and opinion polls.
