IED Conference, Bilbao, Basque Country


IED Event

The Institute of European Democrats together with the Sabino Arana Fundazioa organised a Seminar dedicated to: Israel – Palestine: a new chance for Peace? The event took place on April 27th in Bilbao, at the seat of the Sabino Arana Foundation.

The conflict between Palestine and Israel, now partially relegated to the media because of the devastating wars currently being fought in the region, is still a key element in the complex and chaotic puzzle of the Middle East. Although its deadly intensity has lessened somewhat lately, this everlasting conflict is now moving towards a new stage subsequent to the election of Donald Trump as the new president of the United States. Based on the experience of past failed attempts aimed at dealing with an unstable and unfair situation as regards achieving a lasting peace underpinned by parameters recognised by all parties which should lead to the creation of two secure and viable states, the seminar has tried to deliver balanced responses for this never-ending problem whose resolution would represent a significant contribution as regards achieving peace not only in the Middle East but also in the rest of the world.

The Seminar was organized with the financial support of the European Parliament.
