BBIP (summer)

Beyond Bridges: Israel-Palestine summer program takes university students to the Middle East on a journey of comparative conflict analysis and conflict transformation. Combining rigorous academics and practical hands-on training, this study abroad course allows students to explore questions at the core of all conflicts. BBIP-S creates spaces for both personal and collective growth, helping students gain new understandings of the roles they play in international conflicts, and how this relates to their political identities. Moving beyond the stage of practical peace agreements, or “beyond bridges,” we challenge participants to look at long-term solutions to end inter-communal conflict, transforming societies into their true potential.

Summer 2014 BBIP program dates are Sunday, June 1 - Sunday, June 22.
