Dov Waxman, PhD Biography

Title:
Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Baruch College, City University of New York
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
Reasoning:

“I believe that both the Jewish people and the Palestinian people have a right to exercise national self-determination, and hence a solution to their long conflict must be based upon respect for these rights. A two-state solution involving the creation of an independent and viable Palestinian state alongside the State of Israel has always been and remains to this day the only realistic means of satisfying the legitimate national aspirations of both peoples. Of the many proposed plans for a comprehensive Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, the 2003 Geneva Accord is, in my opinion, the best available so far.”
