Video of the event:
The Initiative aims to find sustainable governance solutions for the Old City of Jerusalem, probably the most sensitive issues in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Our initial efforts identified the needs of stakeholders (symbolic, religious, security, economic, political and social) and posited a set of alternatives to meet them. We concluded that an effective and empowered third party presence was imperative in the Old city, along with the need to maintain its physical integrity. We developed the concept through a process of detailed consultations and research, working with a stellar group of experts, academics, former officials and policymakers.
