Gershon Baskin

Gershon Baskin

Immigrating to Israel at 22, Baskin volunteered in Kafr Qara, a Palestinian village inside of Israel and is a fluent Hebrew and Arabic speaker.

He created the first civil service position in the Israeli government to advance relations between Jewish and Palestinian Israelis and helped create the Department for Education for Democracy and Coexistence.

Later, he founded and directed the Institute for Education for Jewish Arab Coexistence, supported by the Prime Ministers office and Ministry of Education.

He introduced education for coexistence into the National College for the Training of Officers (Har Gilo) and later served in its Education Corp.

After the first intifada, Baskin and Palestinian Co-CEO Hanna Siniora founded IPCRI, the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information, and has been co-director for the past 21 years. Under their leadership, IPCRI has emerged as one of the leading think tanks in the region.

Baskin continues to be a peace activist in nonparliamentary movements and is an accomplished and prize-winning journalist with a regular column in the Jerusalem Post called Encountering Peace. Baskin’s approach to the issues cuts across all sectors on both sides of the Green Line; his insights provide the basis for new and fresh approaches to old problems.
