Monthly Compilation of Views of VIF Expert Groups: November - December 2023
Prerna Gandhi, Associate Fellow, VIF

As 2023 came to a close, the Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF) deliberated on regional issues with implications for India as part of the discussions in its Strategic Issues Group. The ongoing Israel–Palestine conflict has serious implications for India and during the deliberations of this Group, it was abundantly clear that the appetite for the two-state solution seems to have dwindled on both sides. Israel’s stated objective of destroying Hamas appears to be very ambitious, considering the widespread resistance to its ideology, both in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. Another aspect that has clearly emerged is that the hitherto unstinted support of the US for Israel may no longer remain with the changing public attitudes in the US towards this issue.
