Behind the issues in dispute in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict are contradictory identity narratives and a struggle for recognition of the legitimacy of their collective experience. Like so many of today\'s complex conflicts, including current challenges confronting Hong Kong, standard negotiation approaches that seek compromise and a hard bargain are challenged by zero-sum mind sets. These underlying issues require a deep appreciation of the moral convictions, stories and core beliefs that lie behind the issues being raised at the negotiating table. Join veteran Israeli peace negotiator and educator Dr. Tal Becker for an enlightening discussion on ways to rethink intractable conflicts and global lessons to be learnt from the elusive search for Israeli-Palestinian peace.
