Jerusalem 50 Years On: United or Occupied?
November 16, 2017
Daniel (Danny) Seidemann has lived in Jerusalem since he made Aliyah in 1973. He has been a member of the Israeli Bar Association since 1987 and a partner in a firm specializing in commercial law. Since 1991, he has focused on the geopolitics of contemporary Jerusalem and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Along with his colleagues at Terrestrial Jerusalem, an NGO that he founded, Mr. Seidemann is frequently consulted by senior decision-makers and governmental bodies in Israel, Palestine, and in the international community on matters pertaining both to unfolding developments in Jerusalem and to broader issues relating to a permanent status agreement. He has participated in numerous Jerusalem-related projects, colloquia, and track-two deliberations and has led ongoing discussions on Jerusalem within the Arab world and with Christian faith communities and diaspora Jewish communities in North America and Europe. In 2010, Queen Elizabeth II awarded him the title of honorary Member of the Order of the British Empire in recognition for his work in Jerusalem.
