At a time when few believe that peace is possible – we must first ask: Is security possible? The Israel Policy Forum’s “Two-State Security” project examines this question. The project draws upon two unprecedented studies conducted by Israeli and American security experts:
“A Security System for the Two State Solution,” published by the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), is the most comprehensive report on how a two-state solution could be sustained while providing for Israel’s security needs in the long-term.
“Security First,” published by Commanders for Israel’s Security (CIS), proposes steps that can be taken to improve Israel’s security and international standing right away, even in the absence of political negotiations. CIS is a network of over 270 former Israeli security officials who held top positions in the IDF, Shin Bet, Mossad and police forces.
Two-State Security also features a state-of-the-art online map and database developed by the Economic Cooperation Foundation (ECF), which illustrates multiple layers of information on the history of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations relating to borders, security and more.
