A New Plan for Peace in the Middle East

With Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, DBA, Yale University, and Donna Divine, Ph.D., Smith College

The Trump administration promised the “deal of the century” to bring long-awaited peace to the Israelis and Palestinians, and Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, pitched an economic plan that calls for $50 billion in investments parceled out to a number of Middle Eastern countries over 10 years. What does this approach mean for the future of peace and stability in the region?

Join us for a conversation with Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, DBA, Yale University, who attended and moderated panels at the Peace to Prosperity workshop in Bahrain, and Donna Divine, Ph.D., Smith College, on the ongoing Middle East peace process, the role of U.S. leadership, and an opportunity to break down the latest plan for peace in the Middle East.

Moderated by Megan Torrey, CEO, World Affairs Council of Connecticut
