Moderator: Professor David C. Jacobson, Program in Judaic Studies
Like many campuses in the U.S., Brown University has been beset by a polarized discourse about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This discourse reflects the way that the U.S. media portrays the conflict—as an unending battle between two peoples who have been and most likely will continue to be implacable enemies for a long time.
The reality of Palestinian-Israeli relations, however, is more complicated than the way it is often portrayed. Indeed, there are numerous attempts by Israelis and Palestinians to overcome the barriers between their peoples. The purpose of this conference is to bring together Palestinians and Israelis who are active in organizations that seek to foster the efforts of these two peoples to cooperate on projects of mutual benefit that foster better understanding between them and thereby contribute to a possible resolution of this long- standing conflict.
