NGO Monitor’s experts provide cutting-edge research and analysis on the funding and activities of self-proclaimed human rights NGOs involved in the Arab-Israeli conflict. Our staff has presented in Congress, European parliaments, the Knesset, the UN, and academic forums.
In 1947, 33 countries at the United Nations voted in favor of the Partition Plan, recognizing Israel’s right to form a nation state. Today we see a change in this narrative at the UN, in Parliaments across Europe, and on college campuses. How and why has this narrative changed? Prof. Steinberg, President of NGO Monitor, and Elliott Abrams, Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, discuss this change and ways to move forward. Vivian Bercovici, former Canadian Ambassador to Israel, delivers opening remarks.
