Danny Seidemann will lead a conversation about the urgent situation in East Jerusalem, the policies that have led to the current crisis, the efforts of Palestinian and Israeli activists to pull the city back from the brink, and the role of the Obama administration in preventing developments in Jerusalem from destroying the chance for an equitable, sustainable resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Seidemann is an Israeli attorney and founder/director of the Israeli NGO Terrestrial Jerusalem. After litigating a variety of cases in Israeli courts and working for more than 20 years on the most sensitive issues related to Jerusalem, Seidemann has come to be universally regarded as the world’s leading expert on geopolitical Jerusalem. His analysis is relied upon by negotiators and the international community. He is frequently cited in top Israeli, Arab and international media, and is a retired reserve major in Israel’s Defense Forces.
