  • Barriers to Conflict Resolution: The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
    Senior Lecturer Allen Weiner, JD ‘89
    Classroom 290, F.I.R. Hall, Stanford Law School

    For many outside observers, it is possible to imagine a settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that would make not just one side to the conflict, but both sides, better off than they are in their current state of struggle. Indeed, there even seems to be considerable agreement among observers about the potential outlines of such a settlement. Yet the parties to the conflict themselves have been unable to reach agreement. What explains the inability of the parties to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to reach a solution that would improve their conditions? Allen S. Weiner '89, Senior Lecturer in Law and Co-Director of the Stanford Center on International Conflict and Negotiation, will lead this session on multidisciplinary approaches to understanding barriers to conflict resolution.
