Read the Winning “Dear Mr. President” Essay from Contest Winner!

Congratulations to Stefanie Hausheer, the winner of the Friends of the Arc essay contest!  Ms. Hausheer is a graduate student at the Elliott School of International Affairs at the George Washington University in Washington, DC.  Read her essay/policy brief here.

The contest called for a 1000 word response to the following challenge. 

With the resumption of direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, many observers doubt that more purely political discussions will finally produce a comprehensive peace settlement; they suggest that some paradigm-changing idea is needed to break the deadlock. You have been asked to brief President Obama about the Arc project. Prepare a policy brief making the case that the Arc plan is just such a compelling idea, and that with U.S. support, it could help negotiators achieve a breakthrough for peace.

We at Friends of the Arc were heartened by the passion and interest with which this contest was met.  Over 10,000 page views of the essay challenge led to submissions from all over the world.  Ms. Hausheer’s essay demonstrated a passion and sophisticated focus on the value that the Arc could bring to the Middle East conflict.  Entitled “Pushing for a Diplomatic Breakthrough with the Arc”, Ms. Hausheer’s essay outlined the challenge from a security, economic and political perspective.  She critiqued the policy options and recommended courses of action for the President which have true breakthrough potential.  This essay represents a departure from the Washington Consensus which has been less than productive, and offered innovative thinking that we at Friends of the Arc whole-heartedly endorse.

Join us in congratulating Ms. Hausheer, read the essay, and forward it to your friends & colleagues, and your Congressmen and Senators.  And, encourage them to become Friends of the Arc on Facebook and Twitter!
