A five-week summer program giving fifteen Tulane students an immersion in the dynamics of the Arab-Israeli conflict through classroom study and hands-on experience in Jerusalem. The program begins on Tulane’s campus with three short courses on conflict resolution, modern Middle Eastern history, and cultural representations of Israeli-Palestinian relations. After two weeks of intensive study, the group travels to Jerusalem for the last three weeks of the program. The program offers exposure to the daily lives of Israelis and Palestinians in order to provide a balanced perspective on this deeply complex, historically rooted problem.
