In this presentation, we explore what it means to educate for peace in Israel in the context of ongoing conflict. Drawing on our experiences of the Partnership, a community-engaged set of courses that focus on activism and Jewish-Palestinian interaction, we share our insights and encountered challenges in promoting peace education in Israel.
Educating for peace is, to say the very least, a challenge in Israel: the enduring and deeply-seated Israeli-Palestinian conflict permeates all aspects of life including the academia, and the segregated nature of primary and secondary education means that the first encounter between Jews and Palestinians typically takes place on campus.
The history of mutual mistrust, the pervasiveness of unequal power relations and the construction of Palestinian and Jewish identities as diametrically opposed to each other means that the possibilities for genuine peace education are constrained.
The presenters: Our guests from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem - Dr. Daphna Golan-Agnon, Dr. Nadera Shalhoub-Kervorkian & Dr. Rachel Busbridge
