The population of Gaza, currently 1.8 million but predicted to grow to 2.1 million by 2020, live in what has been described as an open air prison. All movement and access of people and goods is tightly controlled by Israel and by Egypt along the southern border. This workshop will look at the devastating impact of recent wars and the continuing blockade, and will explore long-term remedies that will allow the people of Gaza to live a normal life in peace with their Israeli neighbors.
