Please join the Atlantic Council for a public event marking the second anniversary of the signing of the Abraham Accords between Israel and its regional neighbors.

This event will feature panels with officials from Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain. Participants will explore how the Accords have impacted the region, including the role of recent initiatives such as the Negev Forum in deepening regional integration, and prospects for continued regional peace and security.

The virtual event will take place on Thursday, September 8, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. ET. A Zoom link will be sent to those who register.

This event is part of the Atlantic Council’s N7 program dedicated to advancing normalization, peace, and stability in the region in the wake of the Abraham Accords. It is organized in partnership with the Jeffrey M. Talpins Foundation.
