An Israeli-Palestinian Delegation to Sweden

In late May, the Geneva Initiative’s Nidal Foqaha and Daphna Perry traveled to Stockholm, where they met with Ministry of Foreign Affairs officials, senior Members of Parliament and various civil society groups and foundations. They also spoke at a special public event on the Two State Solution, that was attended by over 50 Swedish academics, civil society figures and political activists.
The situation in Gaza, the anticipated American peace plan and the Geneva Initiative’s peace-building efforts were all discussed during this visit, as well as the question of what international actors like Sweden can do to help Israel and the Palestinians reignite negotiations and reach a final status agreement.

Two State Index went down to 5.52 in May

Settlement construction, Gaza escalation, the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem, Abbas’s faltering health, EU action, and more: Here is why our Two-State Index (TSI) went down 0.8 percent in May. 

The TSI is a monthly assessment of the road to the two state solution. Examining more than 50 different parameters, it organizes and systematizes the latest developments and determines whether they create progress toward or regress away from two states. Ultimately, the TSI produces a coherent assessment of the plight of the two-state option. Check out the TSI web site and subscribe to the newsletter here.

The Geneva Initiative in the US: JStreet and USIP Events

In April, the work of the Geneva Initiative was presented in several public events in Washington D.C. GI Palestinian and Israeli Directors Nidal Foqaha and Gadi Baltiansky, together with senior board members Israela Oron and Eti Livni, took part in various panels at the J Street Annual Conference, including one that was devoted exclusively to the Geneva Initiative’s peacebuilding efforts in the past 15 years. Later, they presented the Geneva Initiative’s new approach to peace building at a special United States Institute of Peace roundtable discussion.
