Theory and Practice: Conflict researchers at the East Mediterranean International School (EMIS)

EUNIC Israel

This project combines theory and practice of peace work in three phases. The first phase will be the visit of four chosen European conflict researchers (from Germany, Austria, Spain and Poland) to the East Mediterranean International School EMIS to give workshops to the students (both Israeli and Palestinian students) in order to identify issues commonly. During the second phase, students and researchers will follow up on these workshops by continuing their mutual work via email and skype. The third phase will take place in the framework of the school’s yearly conference on peace and sustainability (YOUCOPAS) in autumn 2018. The researchers will give a final round of workshops and present their project as part of the conference. As a result, both students and researchers will benefit from this experience through a meeting of theory and practice, in a region marked by distinct intercultural conflict.
