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?
