"What can I do as an ordinary citizen, as a person of goodwill, to help support peace in the Middle East?" Mary Robinson, Jimmy Carter and Lakhdar Brahimi answer your questions.
Ela Bhatt, Mary Robinson and Lakhdar Brahimi respond to questions on the Middle East peace process from a young Israeli political leader and members of the Elders' global village.
At the start of their October 2010 visit to the Middle East, Mary Robinson, Ela Bhatt and Lakhdar Brahimi spent a day in the blockaded Gaza strip. A ban by Israel and Egypt prohibits the import of building materials and severely restricts the movement of people and goods in and out of Gaza. The Elders say the blockade is illegal, unconscionable and counterproductive – and call for it to be lifted immediately.
Mary Robinson and Lakhdar Brahimi argue that women must be included in the peace-building process.
