Middle East Peace: Reality or Illusion?
Aaron Miller spent two decades at the U.S. Department of State as an advisor to six Secretaries of State. He is now a Wilson Center Public Policy Scholar focusing on Palestinian and Israeli politics and relations and negotiations in the Middle East.

He recently spent three weeks in the region. We will discover what he learned and if it has changed his mind about short and long term prospects for peace.
