Help Israel/Palestine Share 2 States in 1 Space!

by Israel Palestine Center for Research and Information

Summary

For years, Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations have stalled because of a lack of new ideas. IPCRI's "Two States in One Space" project will develop an alternative roadmap to peace - a confederative-like solution to the conflict. The research project is aiming to examine how two sovereign national states living side by side can also guarantee freedom of movement within them. We believe this formula can ensure answering the toughest questions concerning refugees, settlers and Jerusalem.

Challenge

Negotiations between Israel and Palestine have always followed the same paradigm of separation. Israelis here and Palestinians there. Such a formula fails to answer the needs and desires of both peoples as Israelis and Palestinians have proven their emotional connection and commitment to all the land between the sea and the Jordan River. Thus a strict division of the land and of Jerusalem is impossible and doomed to fail. This has, once again, been proven in the last failure of US brokered talks

Solution

Replacing the separation paradigm with a sharing one, this project is truly a new approach that aims to answer the challenge of reaching Middle East peace. It is still a two state solution - Israel and Palestine - but it instead of separation it envisions a EU type model. The project has already been launched through international donations of $134,450. We are seeking additional funds to deepen and increase the impact. The project is accompanied by a grassroots political initiative.

Long-Term Impact

There is a very strong cooperation between IPCRI's research project and a Israeli and Palestinian grassroots movement that has been operating for over a year. This makes this initiative unique and with a high degree of potential impact. We have 5 working groups in place headed by very talented young professionals who have not been involved in past negotiation process. The project approaches the key issues in a way never before undertaken with a view of creating a confederation-like framework.
