1, Place du Congrès, CEPS Conference Room, 1000 Brussels

2013 marks the 20-year anniversary of the Oslo Accords, signed between the Government of Israel and The Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) in Washington. The Norwegian Refugee Council and the Centre for European Policy Studies will host a high-level symposium in Brussels to take stock of the impact of the non-implementation of the Oslo Accords on the humanitarian situation in Palestine.

• Are the Oslo Accords still a viable basis for the administration to Palestine, or an obstacle to better options for protecting the rights of civilians?

• How can external actors engage practically in improving the quality of day-to-day life in Palestine?

• Have recent actions by European stakeholders been effective in improving the humanitarian situation and what are some new ideas for ways forward?

Finishing and moving beyond the health MDGs


Tuesday 26 November, 14:00 - 15:30
European Development Days 2013, Auditorium A, Tour & Taxis

With only two years to go until the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals, global consultations and positions of leading development agencies on the post-2015 framework are calling for health to be placed at its core, as a critical contributor to sustainable development and human wellbeing.

This High-Level Panel organised as part of the 2013 European Development Days, featuring a keynote speech by Her Excellency Joyce Banda, President of Malawi, will debate how the post-2015 sustainable development agenda should build on and improve the current health Millennium Development Goals, addressing barriers to their achievement related to equity, human rights, financing and ownership.
