Israel/Palestine Conference - Toronto

“Israel/Palestine: Mapping Models of Statehood and Paths to Peace”

June 22-24, 2009 Toronto, Canada

The purpose of this conference is to explore which state model would be the best to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, respecting the rights to self-determination of both Israelis/Jews and Palestinians. Despite the current diplomatic focus on the two-state model, the continued failure to bring peace to the region highlights the necessity of rigorously examining all options for a resolution of the conflict. The conference seeks to systematically measure the two state model against the promise of alternatives; very specifically the
potential in the model of a single bi-national state.

The central goal of the conference is to focus a scholarly lens on a wide range of issues pertaining to one and two state models. These would include, among other relevant topics, possible federal and parallel state models, democracy and constitutional design, immigration and refugee return policies, resource allocation, gender and nationalism, and the role of religion. Mindful of the fraught context in which debates relating to Israel/Palestine unfold, this conference aims to open up a measured and thoughtful conversation on the range of possible paths out of the current impasse.

Conference program is now available on the website http://www.yorku.ca/ipconf/Program.html

The conference is co-sponsored by Queen's University and York University. An official U50 initiative, part of York University's 50th Anniversary celebrations.

Rates will increase after May 25th, for details about registration please visit the conference website:


As conference space is limited, priority will be given to full-time faculty and graduate students with demonstrated scholarly interests in the subject-matter of the conference.
