A. International Conferences

The first conference on "Global Terrorism" was held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York on 6th April, 2003 and was attended by some 200 delegates from 28 countries. 

 

"The Road Map for the Middle East" conference took place at Netanya College on 23rd June, 2003.  With the participation of 1000 experts, scholars and former heads of state, we explored the risks and chances of peace in the Middle East following the Iraq war, prior to the implementation of the road map.

 

On 4th March 2004, in Nicosia , Cyprus , we held a round table on " Cyprus The Day After" with participants from the disputing factions on the Island and Strategic Dialogue experts.  Aimed at strengthening internal dialogue, the round table was held on the eve of the referendum on UN General Secretary Kofi Annan's plan.

 

Europe and the Middle East - A conference was held at the National Assembly in Paris . Panels of representatives from Europe and the Middle East deliberated on the complicated and problematic relations between Europe and the Middle East and sought to investigate solutions to this detrimental situation.

 

Organized in partnership with the Yitzhak Rabin Center , the Center held an international conference entitled "Peace Dream of Vision: A decade since the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin". This conference perpetuated and honored the memory of the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was so tragically assassinated in 1995.  An international undertaking, the event took place in November 2005 to correspond with the ten-year anniversary of his assassination.  The historic gathering included world leaders from four continents who were connected to the peace efforts of Yitzhak Rabin.

 

The conference entitled "The Challenges of Hamas", held in April, 2006, was the first organized discussion in the State of Israel to address the pressing issue of Hamas' rise to power, just over a month after the Hamas government was sworn in. This conference represented an historic gathering of Israeli, Jordanian, Palestinian and American academics, economic and security experts, and former political leaders to discuss the ramifications and challenges of the election of Hamas to the Palestinian Authority parliament.
