Peace parks are trans-boundary areas designated by neighboring states with the dual aim of nature protection and promotion of peace and cooperation. This phenomena is part of the growing worldwide understanding that environment can play a role in the stability of international relations and in conflict resolution processes. In this talk Shahar Sadeh will uncover the rich and unknown history of peace parks initiatives along the Israeli-Arab borders. Explore the different actors and institutions that took part in these processes and question the potential of the environment to serve as a catalyst for peace in the Middle Eastern reality.
