The Oslo Accords at 20: The Humanitarian Reality and Ways Forward

Event Description

2013 marks the 20-year anniversary of the Oslo Accords, signed between the Government of Israel and The Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) in Washington.

The Norwegian Refugee Council and the Centre for European Policy Studies will host a high-level symposium in Brussels to take stock of the impact of the non-implementation of the Oslo Accords on the humanitarian situation in Palestine.

• Are the Oslo Accords still a viable basis for the administration to Palestine, or an obstacle to better options for protecting the rights of civilians?

• How can external actors engage practically in improving the quality of day-to-day life in Palestine?

• Have recent actions by European stakeholders been effective in improving the humanitarian situation and what are some new ideas for ways forward?

Chair: Jan Egeland, Secretary General, Norwegian Refugee Council Speakers:  Leila Shahid, Ambassador of Palestine to the EU, Belgium and Luxembourg  Yossi Beilin, former Minister of Justice of Israel  John Ging, Director, Operational Division, UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs  Andreas Reinicke, EU Special Representative for the Middle East Peace Process  Daniel Levy, Director for Middle East and North Africa, European Council on Foreign Relations
