One of Israel’s best known authors, AB Yehoshua, will join Mark Baker to discuss the Netanyahu-Gantz government’s plans for annexation of the West Bank and the impact on Israeli democracy and efforts to reach a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Winner of the Israel Prize for Literature in 1995, the internationally renowned author and peace activist, will unpack the changing reality on the ground in the West Bank as a result of the expanding settlements and peace plans. His most recent novel is The Tunnel.
Two years ago, he wrote a prescient article in Haaretz about new proposals for an Israeli-Palestinian partnership. In it he considers the future of the two-state solution and, if it’s no longer possible, what can be done to ensure equal rights for both populations under a one-state scenario. The article is available on Haaretz’s website and is embedded on our website. We recommend reading the article before the event.
