How will the US election results affect Israeli policy regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
What US foreign policy shift in the Middle East should we expect if we see a change in the governing administration?
What would a Biden or Trump presidency mean for further Arab state normalization with Israel or the Iranian nuclear threat?
What are similarities, differences, and insights we can draw from social and political polarization in both the US and Israel?
How has the pandemic brought social cleavages to the fore in new ways, and what shared lessons might the US and Israel be able to draw from this?

The Truman Institute invites the public to participate in this discussion, to hear Israeli, Palestinian, and American perspectives on what will happen here and in the region.

The webinar will be held on Zoom and broadcast live on the Truman Institute’s Facebook page.

Participants are welcome to submit questions during the event for the panelists to address.
