Itinerary:

Understanding Areas A, B & C & the Separation Barrier

Through meeting with Israeli Activists, Palestinians, and with Israelis living over the Green Line we will begin to understand the complex system of military control in the West Bank.

A Day in the South: Talking about Gaza

In journeying south we will meet Israelis living in communities on the border with Gaza to learn more about the situations that they face and to discuss possibilities for the future.

The Judicial System In Focus

Since 1967 over 750,000 Palestinian men, women and children have been prosecuted in the military courts. We will visit Ofer military court in the West Bank and learn about this issue through meeting with Israeli and Palestinian lawyers and with Palestinian children and their families.

Jerusalem Under A Lens

Building permits, civil unrest, residency and the peace process; Jerusalem is one of the core issues at the heart of the conflict. We will spend the day with Israelis and Palestinians working in Jerusalem to improve life for those who call the city their home.

Looking Forward

Our final morning will be spent meeting with Israeli’s from various NGO’s and in exploring future possible solutions to the conflict.
