The Role of Women in the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Negotiations


Thanks to the generosity of the Atkin Foundation, ICSR offers 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.

Lior Finkel, ICSR’s Winter Atkin Fellow for 2011, decided to focus her research on the role of women in Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations. Her research highlights the important contributions that female negotiators can make to the stalled Israeli-Arab peace process.
