IPCRI is an independent institution, not affiliated to any political party. In IPCRI we work shoulder-to-shoulder: Palestinians and Israelis, Arabs and Jews, as well as involved outsiders, committed to create a new reality of peaceful cooperation.

With us, parity is principle. There are two chairmen, one Israeli and one Palestinian, just as there are two directors, one Palestinian and one Israeli. And so on.
