BIO

Yossi Beilin is Chairman of the Israeli Meretz-Yachad party, a Member of Knesset and principal Israeli architect of the Geneva Accord.

Dr. Beilin's lengthy career of public service, beginning in 1984 with his appointment as Cabinet Secretary, makes him one of the most experienced politicians in Israel. A member of Knesset for eleven years, Dr. Beilin has held ministerial positions in the governments of Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres and Ehud Barak.

Yossi Beilin is a leading proponent of the peace process with Israel's neighbors and especially the Palestinians, identifying Israel's national interest as being best served by achieving a fair, just, and comprehensive peace in the region. He initiated the secret channel of talks that resulted in the 1993 Oslo Accords, and subsequently in late 1995 drafted a 'non-paper' of guidelines for a permanent status peace agreement with Palestinian leader Abu Mazen.

In July 2001, following the fall of the Barak government and finding himself out of official political office, Yossi Beilin led a group of Israeli intellectuals and academics in signing a Joint Declaration with Palestinian peers, headed by Minister Yasser Abed Rabbo, the first and only action of its kind since the start of the current crisis. In parallel, Dr. Beilin and Mr. Abed Rabbo, leading teams of Israeli and Palestinian experts, former officials and members of civil society, initiated talks aimed at reaching a detailed permanent status agreement. This effort culminated in the Geneva Accord, which was officially launched in Geneva, on December 1, 2003.
