The Elders, a group of eminent global leaders founded by Nelson Mandela, made their second collective visit to the Middle East from 15-22 October 2010. Mary Robinson led the Elders' delegation composed of Ela Bhatt, Lakhdar Brahimi and Jimmy Carter. The aim of their visit was to encourage peace efforts, with an emphasis on the need to reach "a just and secure peace for all" based on international law.
The Elders began their trip in Egypt and travelled to Gaza, Syria, Jordan, Israel and the West Bank.
