Stephen P. Cohen
Track two, or unofficial, diplomacy has played a pivotal role in the history of Israel’s relations to her Arab neighbors, stretching the bounds of what was previously believed possible. Track Two efforts have laid the groundwork for a number of historic treaties and have also spawned a good number of scenarios which never be adopted by official diplomacy, but which demonstrate where the cutting edges of peace making might be. The speaker, one of the world’s foremost experts on the subject will explore the implications of two track diplomacy for Israel past and future.
