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.

Damian Gorman has been a writer and encourager of other people's writing for more than 25 years. He was founding director of An Crann/The Tree, a charity which worked to help "tell, and hear, the stories of Northern Ireland's Troubles through the arts" from 1994 to 2001. His work has garnered awards as diverse as a Better Ireland Award and an MBE.

Dr Anton Obholzer is a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and a Member of the British Psychoanalytical Society. He was for many years Head of the Tavistock centre London. He is an experienced international organizational consultant presently linked with the French International Business School (INSEAD) global leadership centre. His particular interest is in change and resistance to change in organizations.
