    Restoring Dignity in the Israel-Palestine Conversation
    Starts: 6:00 pm
    Ends: September 30, 2014 - 8:00 pm
    Location: To be determined
    Description: Join us in this “third space” series to talk and learn about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In this group we will focus on developing our listening skills and understandings of the underlying tensions and diverse opinions involved both on the ground in the Middle East as well as on the Tufts campus. Over 2 months students will take part in a series of skills and team building exercises, films and lectures, and facilitated conversations with the end goals of:

    Fostering deeper relationships across lines of diversity and opening lines of communications especially in times of heightened conflict;
    Understanding the multiplicity of perspectives involved in the conflict;
    Providing connections to existing avenues of Conflict Transformation and Resolution;
    Fostering recognition of personal agency to make change;
    And envisioning creative new paths for peacemaking.
    Facilitators:

    Yousef Bashir is a Palestinian from Gaza, who graduated from Northeastern University in 2013 and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Conflict and Coexistence at Brandeis University. Yousef has committed himself to getting an education in the U.S. and dedicating his life to ending the cycle of hatred and revenge between Israel and Palestine. He has given talks at colleges throughout the country, including Harvard, Berkeley, and U.C. Davis.

    Rebecca Polivy is Director of Programming at Encounter. She has contributed to programs emphasizing sports, social entrepreneurship, the media, and face-to-face interactions for transforming the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She holds a Master’s in Conflict Transformation and Intercultural Organizational Leadership from the School for International Training in Vermont, and a Bachelor’s in Religion and Economics from the University of Rochester.
