We are happy to announce the official opening of the registration to the next session “Political Science and Middle East Studies ” which will be held between 5-30 July, 2012.
The main goal of this programme is to enable participants to form their unique personal impressions of the region, by providing a framework that allows for immediate and unfiltered exposure to the daily realities as experienced by the peoples in the region. Through lectures and study tours, participants will gain a better understanding of the range of responses offered by the religiously and ethnically varied populations to the complex issues routinely encountered in this region.
The programme will also include events that allow first hand exposure to the Israeli – Palestine conflict: meeting with Palestinian NGOs; a visit to the West Bank; meetings with people from Arab villages in Israel; a panel discussion with representatives from Israeli political parties across the political spectrum and much more.
Students who are interested should contact the Programme Director, Mrs. Shiri Salant Fein, at: ME@galilcol.ac.il.
