Since the outbreak of hostilities between Israel and Hamas in October 2023, MEI has organized in-depth, weekly virtual briefings that examine the conflict and the impact it is having on Gaza and Israel, as well as its reverberations throughout the region and on US foreign policy. Each week, MEI brings together two of our experts to delve into a different aspect of the war and answer questions from an invitation-only audience. 

Below please find links to all the briefings held to date, including video recordings and transcripts.

This virtual briefing series on the Israel-Hamas war will continue on a weekly basis into 2024. To learn more about the series and receive invitations to join the live Q&A, please contact Thomas Halvorsen, Associate Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations, at
