DescriptionOpen to undergraduate and graduate students, this intensive 9 week program begins with a seminar in Jerusalem where leading Israeli and Palestinian experts, representatives of various Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs), peace activists, private sector and government officials will address the group and share their perspectives on the dynamics of Israeli-Palestinian relations.
Numerous site visits will also be made to settlements in the territories, refugee camps, government offices, and cultural
