Geneva Initiative Conference: Lessons from Other Conflicts



In September, the Geneva Initiative held a conference on “Lessons from other Conflicts” in Jerusalem. The conference featured Cyprus expert Dr. Harry Tzimitras, who heads the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) in Cyprus; Northern Ireland expert and conflict management practitioner Ariel Heifetz Knobel; and Prof. Zohar Kampf from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, who specializes in communication, conflicts and peace. 


New poll: most of us are wrong

More than half of Israelis who support the two-state solution think that they are a minority. They are wrong. A new poll shows that only 28% of Israelis think there is a majority who supports the two-state solution, while the actual percentage of supporters is 53%. On the Palestinian side, a majority of 52% supports the two-state solution and only 45% oppose it.

For the full poll conducted by the Tami Steinmetz Center for Peace Research (TSC), Tel Aviv University and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR) in Ramallah, with funding from the European Union (EU) and the Netherlands Representative Office in Ramallah.
