  • Daniel Seidemann (Terrestrial Jerusalem) will talk about Jerusalem’s intricate infrastructure, and the practical challenges in dividing the city between the two people.
  • Trond Bakkevig (PRIO) presents the burning religious aspects of Jerusalem, and in what way these prevent a solution to the conflict. 
  • Jacob Høigilt (PRIO) focuses on the situation of Palestinians in East Jerusalem. They feel forgotten and neglected, but their fate is central to the conflict. 
  • Marte Heian-Engdal (PRIO) gives an introduction and moderates the panel. 

The seminar is co-hosted by the House of Literature and the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO).

Registration to this seminar is not necessary.
