Yousef Munayyer will discuss the situation on the ground in Palestine today and how we arrived at this point despite the optimism that many felt during the early years of the "peace process". He will argue that things will not improve unless there is external involvement to precipitate this change and that thus far the state system has failed in its responsibility to carry this out and therefore it has fallen on civil society to take up this role. Yousef will go over civil society’s efforts to hold Israel accountable for Palestinian rights as well as the future prospects of this approach.
