*Dr Tony Klug is a Special Advisor on the Middle East to the Oxford Research Group and a Consultant to the Palestine Strategy Group and the Israel Strategic Forum. He has written extensively about Israeli-Palestinian issues since the early 1970s when he first proposed the two-state idea. His doctoral thesis, written after spending prolonged periods in the 1970s travelling through Israel, the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt, interviewing scores of people at every level, was on the Israeli occupation of the West Bank between the wars of 1967 and 1973. He has also written four Fabian pamphlets: ‘Middle East conflict: a tale of two peoples’ (1973), the first publication in the UK to call for two states; ‘Middle East impasse: the only way out’ (1977); ‘How peace broke out in the Middle East: a short history of the future’ (2007); ‘Visions of the Endgame: a strategy to bring the Israeli-Palestinian conflict swiftly to an end’ (2009).Tony worked for many years as a senior official at Amnesty International, where he headed the International Development programme. In the distant past, he was President of the University of Birmingham Students’ Union and Deputy President of the NUS, where he had the principal responsibility for international affairs. Tony has a close affinity with both peoples and is currently writing a book on his 50 years of engagement with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
