to be held in Jerusalem

June 13-21, 2007

The purpose of the workshop is to provide selected university teachers from around the world with a better understanding of the nature of the Arab-Israeli conflict, its latest dynamics and the prospects for war and/or peace in the near future. The workshop aims to increase knowledge and enhance teaching on the subject, and to provide participants, and thereby their students, with tools and information that will help them combat the increasingly hostile atmosphere on many university campuses.

Ø The 9-day workshop will include lectures by scholars and specialists, briefings by policy makers, study tours along Israel’s borders and exposure to techniques for improving communication skills on this charged subject.

Ø Lectures and discussions at the workshop will be in English.

Ø The workshop will be based on the Mt. Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Ø Accommodation will be provided in Jerusalem for participants.

Ø The participation fee for the workshop is US$150.

Interested applicants should submit a full CV and a short statement of their specific research interests. Participation is limited, and some places will be reserved for junior faculty.
