In Atkin Fellowship Seminars

On 27 November ICSR Atkin Fellow Amal Abusrour hosted a talk by Professor Manuel Hassassian, Palestinian Ambassador to the United Kingdom. The Ambassador spoke on possibilities for progress in the Israel-Palestine peace process, highlighting the structural and political challenges standing in the way of a breakthrough. He expressed some hope that the shift in Presidential administration in the United States would lead to a ‘window of opportunity’ for concrete progress, but conceded that much depended on domestic developments in Israel, which faces upcoming government elections itself. An informative question-and-answer session followed the talk.

The ICSR Atkin Fellowship brings together young leaders from Israel and the Arab world to conduct research and work together in London.
