The aim of this program is to educate international visitors—whether students or journalists, authors or activists—about the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict by providing safe and secure tours of West Bank conflict zones, facilitating dialogue with people who have been and are directly affected by the conflict, and setting up meetings with prominent peace activists, political officials, and human rights organizations from both sides. Program participants will be able to meet with representatives from B’Tselem, Ittijah, Christian Peacemaker Teams, Temporary International Presence in Hebron, Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, The Right of Education Campaign, and The Palestinian Center for Rapprochement Between People. Participants can also visit various refugee camps and unrecognized villages, and attend lectures and events in Bethlehem, Jerusalem, and Ramallah.
