The Arab-Israeli Neighborhood, June 4-18, 2018
This course is traveling to Israel and the Palestinian Territories to negotiate and draft a peace agreement between prominent Israeli and Palestinian think tanks. We will mediate between influential research centers that directly advise their respective governments on policy matters. Discovering this ancient land and immersing ourselves in its diverse cultures are both sweet and essential to our mission. We will tour the region, closely examine current peacemaking models, meet grassroots activists, interact with ordinary folk, and attend college seminars on geostrategy and conflict resolution. A variety of recreational activities and very much fun are of course part of the experience. Open to students, alumni, and families. No background on the subject is necessary.
Cost: $5,000 (Scholarships available)
