Ehud Olmert Discusses Peace and the Arab Spring

View Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's presentation on November 12, 2013, online.

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who many say came as close as any politician to a peace agreement with the Palestinians, welcomed the opportunity to outline his thoughts on the prospects for peace amid the Arab Spring in a November 12 address at Dartmouth, “where so many heads of state and world leaders have visited before me.”

Daniel Benjamin, Director of the Dickey Center for International Understanding, noted that Olmert is an important figure in Israeli and Mideast politics because of his political evolution from the political right “to become a leader of the peace process who came tantalizingly close to forging a peace with the Palestinians.”

Olmert spoke with a group of Dartmouth students at lunch and later addressed approximately 500 faculty, staff, students, and community members in Cook Auditorium at the Tuck School of Business.
