In July 2009, ICSR brought together experts and policymakers from across the region at the Atkin Conference on Middle East Peace, to work out ways to move the situation forward.
The result is a booklet with 15 ideas on ‘how to fix the Middle East’. They are snapshots of the discussions and the debate that took place at the conference.
They don’t amount to a comprehensive peace plan, nor are they all complementary. But they provide an excellent overview of the issues that have to be addressed and show that positive action is possible, no matter how fraught the situation appears to be. It is precisely this kind of creative thinking and debate that’s needed now more than ever.
