On Tuesday, February 11, join Hudson Institute for a panel discussion on President Trump’s plan for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Billed by the president as “The Deal of the Century,” the plan breaks with the approach of all previous presidents since the end of the Cold War. Instead of establishing general principles for negotiations, President Trump and his team have published a detailed blueprint for peace, including a clear description of how major issues like borders, Jerusalem, settlements, and refugees might be settled.

President Trump’s plan has received a more favorable reception in Israel than any previous American proposal with both major political parties welcoming the plan as a major opportunity.

Meanwhile, the plan has enraged the Palestinians. Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, immediately denounced the plan as a “conspiracy” designed to prevent the emergence of a sovereign Palestinian state.

Internationally, the plan has received a much more favorable reception than experts predicted. While many states, including in both Europe and the Middle East, have endorsed it as a fresh and promising approach, a significant group of detractors have lined up with the Palestinians in pronouncing the plan dead on arrival.

Without a Palestinian partner, is the plan destined, as its critics argue, to fail? Or will it, as its supporters claim, reshape the conflict in significant, beneficial, and lasting ways? The panel will address these questions and the future prospects of peace in the Middle East.

NOTE: This event is open to the press. All members of the media should RSVP to press@hudson.org.

Reforming the Classification System: Challenges, Approaches, and Priorities

Our national security relies on the careful and deliberate creation, dissemination, and protection of classified information. But some contend that the current system for classifying and declassifying US government records is outdated and imposes significant economic and public policy costs, directly and indirectly harming national security.
