In July 1991 at Stanford University, Dr. Harold H. (Hal) Saunders first announced the birth of the citizen-to-citizen "public peace process" as defined in the newly-signed FRAMEWORK FOR A PUBLIC PEACE PROCESS.
This landmark document represented the first time Israelis and Palestinians signed a comprehensive agreement. Although non-binding, it served as a model for future proposals.
The Framework's historical relevance is also in its clarification that
governments cannot move ahead of the people, who must have in place citizen-to-citizen relationships and cooperative models that dignify both peoples, reduce fear, increase confidence, and demonstrate to both peoples what successful, sustained relationships look like.
