International leaders, including representatives from the United States, Israel and the Palestinian Authority, met at Annapolis to develop a foundation upon which the Israelis and Palestinians can move toward a negotiated peace agreement. Key questions emerged from the meeting: What measures should be taken on the “day after” Annapolis to ensure the parties move toward peace and address permanent-status issues? What will constitute success? Is there an opening for an Israel-Syria dialogue? How does the Annapolis meeting affect wider trends in the struggle for power in the Middle East?
On November 28, the Brookings Institution hosted a discussion to answer these questions and address the future of the peace process.
