The Intractable Issue: Palestinian Refugees and 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.

Elhanan Miller, ICSR’s Spring Atkin Fellow for 2012, used his time in London to examine the contentious issue of ‘right of return’ and its place within any Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process. Elhanan is the Arab Affairs reporter for the Times of Israel and holds a Masters degree in Middle East history and Islamic Studies from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
