[Palestine] International Seminar: Bridges instead of Walls (AIC)
The Alternative Information Center invites you to:
The International Seminar “Bridges instead of Walls”
26th April – 1st May 2012
After the success of the last ten editions, we continue with our International Political Field Seminar “Bridges instead of Walls” program, taking place four to five times a year in Palestine!
The AIC is based in Beit Sahour/Bethlehem. The group moves every day departing from Beit Sahour and come back every night to the guesthouse right next the AIC Center. The seminar includes lectures, interactive meetings with several civil society actors, political figures and partner organizations as well as tours in many different locations of the West Bank and Israel. During our 6 full-program days the participants will get an intensive and critical overview of the political and economical aspects of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict as well as of the Palestinian and Israeli societies. We try to cover all the crucial issues to understand the roots of the conflict and the current developments: the history of the conflict and the peace process, the political strategy of the occupation and its economic effects, the structure of the Israeli society and the big challenges of Palestinian society such as the economic development and the resistance under occupation, as well as issues such as the political repression, the human rights and the role of the international community.
FEES: 400 € (2000 NIS) including the whole program, local transport, full board & lodging in double or 3 beds rooms in a local Guesthouse
