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?
