In Between: Visions From Contested Cities
Time & Location
About the Event
Over the last years, IPCRI and the Davis Institute for International Relations from the Hebrew University were engaged in a project aimed at building shared visions for Jerusalem. In this project and with the support of the EU Peacebuilding Initiative, local residents from diverse communities from across Jerusalem engaged in mapping local needs and designing their visions for the future of the city.
As complementary to this work, IPCRI organized in partnership with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the Irish Aid delegations of experts and civil society leaders from Jerusalem to other contested cities such as Belfast, Nicosia and Sarajevo. These delegations focused on the reality of cities in conflict and highlighted the lessons that can be learned from other conflicts.
In the first part of this conference, scholars will present policy recommendations designed by local residents and will receive input from visionaries from other contested cities. Following this part, we will host panels and workshops focusing on the practice of bringing change to contested spaces. From urban planning through shared education and equal representation, we aim to present a comprehensive vision towards the future of those cities in conflict.
The 1st day is scheduled to take place in the campus of the Hebrew University at Mount Scopus and the 2nd day will take place in the Konrad Adenauer Convention Center in Mishkenot Sha'ananim.
