Overview

A new report by the RAND Corporation, The Costs of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, estimates the net costs and benefits over the next ten years of five alternative trajectories -- (1) a two-state solution, (2) coordinated unilateral withdrawal, (3) uncoordinated unilateral withdrawal, (4) nonviolent resistance, and (5) violent uprising -- compared with the costs and benefits of a continuing impasse.

This event will explore both the economic and the non economic factors surrounding the conflict that might influence the parties' decisions and the long-term implications for Israel, the West Bank and Gaza and the international community.
