Gas Wars or Peace Pipelines? Energy and Conflict in the East-Mediterranean Sea

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Israel and the Maritime Policy & Strategy Research Center, University of Haifa cordially invite you to attend a Zoom panel

From what was once prophesized to be a strong incentive for peace and stability in the region, natural gas discoveries have since become a major flashpoint between the countries of the East Mediterranean Sea. Disagreements over energy exploration rights and maritime borders had escalated in the past two years to involve mutual threats, deployment of warships, new strategic pacts, and increased involvement by foreign powers with contrasting interests. Is it too late to stop the gas wars, and is it really just about the gas? In this panel we will bring experts from Israel, Cyprus, Turkey, Germany and the US to discuss energy and conflict in the East Mediterranean and where it might lead to in the upcoming months and years. The event is co-organized by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Israel and Maritime Policy & Strategy Research Center at the University of Haifa.

Syria after the Arab Spring: War, Identity, and Generational Change

You are cordially invite you to attend the third virtual meeting of the KAS/MDC Hiwar Forum for Intra-Regional Dialogue

Syria was often described as the “last bastion of Arab nationalism.” It took an active part in all military confrontations against Israel since 1948 and continues to play a vital rule in the “axis of resistance” that serves as the main link between Iran and Hizballah. How-ever, the Syrian war, which has devastated Syria, has changed Syria’s political dynamics. In our dialogue we will speak with two Syrians who have experienced the Syrian war, the Syrian transition and have found themselves doing their part to create a new dis-course in the region. *This event is being held under the Chatham House Rule.

Irregular Migration in the Mediterranean

11-14 March 2015

Each year, thousands of African refugees try to reach the European mainland. In the majority of cases hunger, grinding poverty and the fear of persecution caused by race, religion or language are the motivations for people fleeing their homes in one of the numerous unstable countries in Africa. The routes used by the refugee-smugglers lead them in parts across multiple Stations on the African continent before they reach the ocean and continue their dangerous journey by crossing the Mediterranean to reach southern Europe or make their way through the Sinai to reach Israel.

Arab Politics in Israel and the 20th Knesset Elections

The Israeli elections scheduled for March 17th have the potential to be historic for Arab citizens. This is, in large part, due to the formation of the Joint List, which stands to become perhaps the third-largest faction in the Knesset, and a potential electoral ‘kingmaker.’ Consequently, on March 10, 2015, our Konrad Adenauer Program for Jewish-Arab Cooperation at the Tel Aviv University hosted a conference on “Arab Politics in Israel and the 20th Knesset Elections.”
