    Yitzhak Rabin: Soldier, Leader, Statesman
    A special event to launch a Rabin biography by Ambassador Itamar Rabinovich

    When: Thursday, March 9, 2017, 2:00 — 3:30 p.m.

    Where: The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC


    On March 9, the Center for Middle East Policy at Brookings will host an event featuring Brookings Distinguished Fellow, Israeli Institute President, and former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Itamar Rabinovich whose new book, “Yitzhak Rabin: Soldier, Leader, Statesman” (Yale University Press, February 2017) recounts the late Israeli prime minister’s rise through Israel’s military and political ranks.

    Join us as experts reflect upon Rabin’s relationships with global leaders, including President Bill Clinton; his efforts to bring about an Israeli-Palestinian peace; and the ramifications of his tragic assassination on the peace process. As a close aide to Prime Minister Rabin, Ambassador Rabinovich offers original research and new insights into the life and legacy of this revered warrior-statesman.

    The program will begin with featured remarks by President Bill Clinton. Afterwards, Brookings Executive Vice President Martin Indyk will moderate a conversation between Ambassador Rabinovich and Dalia Rabin, the late Prime Minister Rabin’s daughter and former member of Knesset.

    Following the discussion, the panelists will take audience questions.

    This event has reached capacity and registration is now closed.
