Please join us during the Spring Break of 2006, for a study-tour of Social Justice and Human Rights issues in Israel and in the Palestinian Authority. The tour is scheduled for 8 days, 7 nights. The price of the study-tour includes all the activities on the ground, lodging, three meals a day and all entry fees.
Our counterparts in Israel and in the Palestinian Authority are leading social justice and human rights organizations. Topics for exploration will be: peace and reconciliation, national rights, poverty incidence areas, environmental issues, housing (construction and demolitions), child development, civil rights, the Justice system, education and basic infrastructure conditions. We will visit with the NGOs and each will explain to us the social and economic conditions of their constituents. The NGOs will also take us to meet and examine their various projects. On each side of the border, the NGOs will take us to see case studies, field projects they are working on, as well as conduct for us other cultural and touring activities. We will meet with NGO leaders, grass roots activists, government officials, academics, artists and leaders of dissident movements. In addition we will visit religious, archeological and cultural sites of interest in the territories of Israel and the PA.
The total cost of the study-tour is U$S 1,918.00. If you wish to initiate your own group, we might be able to obtain a significant tour-leader discount. Please share this study-tour program with your colleagues and students.
