MENA Salon: Will Fatah and Hamas Reconcile?

3 - 4 p.m.
Stephens Hall 340

Center for Middle Eastern Studies

On October 2, representatives of Palestinian parties Fatah and Hamas met in Gaza to pursue a reconciliation deal. This is not the first time the two groups have attempted to reach a deal. What developments lead to this particular set of negotiations? Will this attempt at creating a unity government be successful? What do Israel, Egypt, and other regional stakeholders think about these developments? We will consider these and other questions in this week's MENA Salon.
