Over the past several months, the United States has been negotiating with Israel and Arab states over measures designed to launch formal final status negotiations on a comprehensive peace agreement. As a member of the PLO Executive Committee, which is responsible for these final status negotiations, Dr. Hanan Ashrawi is well placed to discuss next steps in how American leadership can create the conditions necessary for a successful outcome and to discuss any developments arising from the United Nations General Assembly meetings of heads of states. Dr. Ashrawi is the first woman to serve on the Executive Committee of the PLO. She was recently elected in the first ever direct elections for membership in the PLO's primary decision making body. She has twice been elected to the Palestinian Legislative Council, is the founder of The Palestinian Initiative for the Promotion of Global Dialogue & Democracy (MIFTAH) and other civil society and human rights organizations, is a member of Prime Minister Salam Fayyad's Third Way party, and was a member of the original Palestinian negotiating team in the 1991 Madrid talks with Israel.
