Proposed by Hartman senior fellow Micah Goodman, “shrinking the conflict” is a new strategy for moving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict forward. What does it mean and what does it entail? Is it a step forward or a step backwards?

In this episode, Donniel Hartman, Yossi Klein Halevi and Elana Stein Hain discuss the moral benefits and pitfalls of this new strategy and whether it is could be a permanent solution — or just a temporary one.
