Securing the Economic Future of Palestine

Despite the best efforts of presidents of both parties, the United States has yet to broker a comprehensive, two-state solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. However difficult diplomatic progress may be, there are steps the United States and its allies can take to keep the window for a two-state solution alive. By encouraging economic progress in the Palestinian territories, the United States and its allies can improve the day-to-day lives of average Palestinians and strengthen the foundation for an eventual Palestinian state.

Please join the Center for American progress for a panel discussion on what the United States and its allies can do to improve Palestinian economic prospects even in the absence of a two-state solution.
