The Israeli – Palestinian Conflict, Understanding Both Sides

The Israeli – Palestinian Conflict, Understanding Both Sides

Dates: 19 - 31 July, 2018

This programme is delivered in Israel by representatives of different Israeli and Palestinian groups, adding another layer of engagement with the core issues of the region’s current reality as it is lived. One of the primary objectives is to enable participants interested in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict a fresh way of seeing it. We seek for comprehension to be obtained by personal experience based on direct discussions and meetings with diverse people in their own environment. The emphasis is on considering ways the peace process may be advanced. The programme is open to all professionals, students and faculty members who are interested in the subject.
