“From Camp David to Oslo to…?”

cairo review

To mark the passing of the 40th and 25th anniversaries of the Camp David and Oslo Accords, respectively, the Cairo Review of Global Affairs is delighted to announce the release of our Winter 2019 issue: From Camp David to Oslo to…?


The issue brings together a remarkable range of perspectives, particularly from the people who participated in the negotiations and signing of these two landmark agreements. It also features the voices of those working to forge peace between Palestine and Israel today. In our lead essay—“Keeping the Hope of Peace Alive”—EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, argues why, despite setbacks, the two-state solution is still the only just and viable resolution to the conflict.


It also includes essays by the negotiators who helped shape Camp David, including former Egyptian foreign minister and secretary-general of the Arab League Nabil Elaraby. In “Faith That Peace Will One Day Come” former U.S. president and architect of the accords, Jimmy Carter, reflects on the statesmanship that made those agreements possible, and his hopes for a lasting Palestinian-Israeli peace in the years to come.


In this issue we ask: through 40 years of negotiations, hostilities, moments of hope and devastating setbacks in the Arab-Israeli conflict…what have we learned, and where do we go from here?
