After 20 years of a stalled peace process in Israel and the Palestinian Territories, many people might say, "Nothing ever changes. Why bother anymore?"

Come learn about a range of Israeli and Palestinian civil society–based peacebuilders and conflict resolution efforts.

These initiatives include efforts that are both intra-group (for example, religious and secular Jews in Israel; Palestinians from different political camps) and inter-group (for example, Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel; Israelis and Palestinians from the West Bank).
The course will focus on the development and impact assessment of conflict resolution programs in the current Israeli-Palestinian context.
