Gaza Approaching a Boiling Point?

  • Middle East Institute 1319 18th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)

Political and humanitarian conditions in Gaza are in a critical state. The Fatah-Hamas rivalry and the Gulf countries’ rift with Qatar have stymied funding to the territory and exacerbated an already desperate energy crisis. The issuance of exit permits to Palestinians in Gaza is at its lowest rate since 2014.

In the midst of pressing humanitarian concerns, what options do Palestinians and Israelis have to help prevent renewed violence? How can the United States and the international community bring the question of Gaza back into regional deliberations and the peace process?

The Middle East Institute (MEI) is hosting a discussion with Tareq Baconi (al Shabaka), Lara Friedman (FMEP), Christopher McGrath (UNRWA) and Natan Sachs (Brookings) on the ways in which to mitigate political and humanitarian problems in Gaza.
