Oxford Research Group (ORG) and the Palestine Strategy Group (PSG) will host a virtual report launch to introduce the ‘Palestine 2030’ strategic report on 30 June 2020.

The event will feature a short presentation on the key findings of the report and a panel discussion with the members of the PSG Secretariat Dr. Husam Zomlot, Mr. Sam Bahour and Dr. Bashir Bashir, moderated by Leila Farsakh, Chair and Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Massachusetts, Boston. This will be followed by an interactive Q&A with the audience which includes senior members of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, Members of the Knesset, foreign diplomats, and influential members of civil society both within and outside of Palestine.

 The report represents the final stage of a three-year, ORG-led project entitled ‘Building Strategic Capacity: Empowering Civil, Political and Emerging Constituencies in Palestine’. The project is the most recent phase of ORG’s ongoing work in Palestine and builds upon the successes of the past thirteen years. This has and continues to involve nurturing a unique and locally-driven methodology that identifies, analyses and promotes the conditions necessary for realising a two-state settlement of the Palestine-Israel conflict. It is based upon ORG’s Collective Strategic Thinking methodology which is pioneered by Professor Oliver Ramsbotham, senior advisor to ORG. It is this methodology that underpins ‘Palestine 2030’.
