Dear Friends

 

On January 4-5, 2008 IPCRI (the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information) will be convening a two-say workshop on peace education.   The Workshop will bring together peace educators, curricula writers, encounter facilitators, peace studies practitioners, conflict resolution practitioners, mediators, and activists from academia, research sector, governmental and community organizations and others from Israel, Palestine and beyond.

 

The Workshop will be a tremendous opportunity for dialogue, debate and visioning with collaboration and cooperation between the body of theory and practice. The Workshop will be meeting grounds for dialogue and mutual learning from the field of peace education from the viewpoint of academia and from the field of practioners. The Workshop will raise critical issues and acquire new insights into the profound peace education developments in Israel, Palestine and around the world. Furthermore, the Workshop will provide an excellent opportunity to build connections across multi-disciplinary sectors.

 

Like our Conference last year in Turkey, this workshop will be facilitated by the participants themselves.  The subjects on which we will concentrate can relate to any of the following:

 

Main Themes for the Workshop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Participation Call for Abstracts

 

IPCRI is calling on potential participants to submit an abstract for making a presentation at the workshop.  This is not a formal academic conference therefore; abstracts will be evaluated on a wider basis than the normal academic criteria.  We are looking for creative, exciting and innovative approaches to peace education.

 

 

Costs

 

We are requesting that all of those who can, to pay 400 NIS for this workshop.  There will be scholarships available for those who cannot afford to pay.  We would like all participants including Jerusalemites to stay overnight in Tantur.  Lodgings will be on double rooms.
