In the first of this year’s series of lectures hosted by the UCLA Center for Middle Eastern Development (CMED), Ambassador Oded Eran presented an Israeli perspective on the survivability of his country’s peace treaties with Jordan and Egypt. He draws on many years of experience in the Israeli government, including serving as ambassador to Jordan (1997-2000) and chief negotiator with the Palestinians (1999-2000). He is currently a senior research fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS).
