Dr. Gershon Baskin, a veteran Israeli peace activist and founder of the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information, will present the story of the secret and direct channel of talks that he held with Hamas since the first week after Gilad Schalit’s abduction in the end of June 2006. Those contacts led to the breakthrough that brought Schalit home in October 2011 after over five years in captivity. Dr. Baskin will discuss lessons learned about the role of civil society in peacemaking and negotiations.
