The Middle East is entering a new era, both daunting and hopeful, but the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has slipped into the background. Thanks to Olive Tree scholarships some young Palestinians and Israelis have been able to take time out to study for degrees at City University. While doing so, they can speak to each other in ways not possible 'at home'.
The Olive Tree Middle East Forum has brought together an unusual panel to ask what difference this experience can make for those otherwise unable to talk across the conflict divide.

His work has garnered awards as diverse as a Better Ireland Award and an MBE.
