Yesterday we learned that Shimon Peres, a two-time prime minister of Israel and long-time Israeli politician passed away at the age of 93. Peres was a long-time advocate for peace in the Middle East, and was awarded a Noble Peace Prize in 1994 for his work on the Oslo Accords (along with Yassir Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin). Understanding the complexities of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine is the subject of many books, articles and discussions, but Peres' role in progressing peace in the region is part of his enduring legacy.

To learn more about the Oslo Accords and the series of negotiations and treaties that lead to them, we recommend a great study set, The 1991 Madrid Peace Conference, the Washington Talks, and the 1993 Oslo Accords. To learn more about Shimon Peres and the other major players in the Madrid and Oslo talks, make sure to review the Madrid and Oslo study set as well.
