Conflict 101

A series of eight educational videos by Dr. Shaul Arieli dealing with the core issues in resolving the conflict, focusing on both near-term opportunities and a permanent status agreement (PSA) in the future.

Shaul Arieli, born in Ashkelon, is considered to be an ‘encyclopedia’ of the Israeli-Palestinian political process and is one of Israel’s leading experts on the demarcation of the future Israeli-Palestinian border and the route of the Separation Barrier. As part of his military service, Dr. Arieli was responsible for the preparation of the official negotiations with the Palestinians, as head of the Interim Agreement Administration under the Rabin government and head of the Peace Administration in the Barak Government. Since retiring from the IDF in 2001, Arieli has dedicated himself to advancing an Israeli-Palestinian permanent status agreement and was amongst the leading negotiators in the process that brought about the Geneva Initiative in December of 2003.
