Discussion with Irena Kalhousová and Jakub Szántó

What are the chances of ending the conflict and starting a dialogue? How have the events of recent months changed Israeli and Palestinian society? And can the escalation of violence between Israelis and Palestinians lead to renewed negotiations for a peaceful solution, or is peace in the Middle East increasingly elusive? The topic will be discussed by Irena Kalhousová, director of the Herzl Centre for Israeli Studies at Charles University, and journalist and former foreign correspondent for Czech Television Jakub Szántó.


Irena Kalhousová has long specialized in Israel, the Arab-Israeli conflict and Middle East security. She holds a PhD from the London School of Economics & Political Science, an MA from the University of Cambridge, and a BA from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She has worked as a researcher at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv and as a senior analyst at the Institute for Security Studies in Prague. She is the author of a number of scholarly texts focusing on security and foreign policy in the Middle East and Central Europe. She regularly appears as an expert on Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the Czech and international media.
