How to Create the Conditions for Conflict Resolution: Youth Attitudes in Israel/Palestine


John Lyndon

Executive Director of OneVoice Europe

Abstract

Israelis and Palestinians currently find themselves more polarised— and leading more parallel existences— than perhaps at any other point in this conflict’s hundred year history.

This is only more pronounced amongst the young, with levels of mistrust, hatred and ignorance that, if left unaddressed, promise a future that could conceivably be much worse than the already dystopian reality inhabited by Arabs and Jews in the Holy Land.

With the two-state solution’s very viability now open to question, and no signs of a diplomatic process worth its name, what can be done to create more viable conditions for genuine conflict resolution? And what is our responsibility, here in the UK and Europe, to help Israelis and Palestinians out of this morass?
