Nonviolence: What is the strategic value of nonviolence? What role do women play in nonviolent movement-building? How does the character of movements challenging the status quo interact with a day-after vision for change? Participants will explore Palestinian and Israeli nonviolence leaders' perceptions of and experiences with nonviolent direct action.
Hopes and Fears: What role does fear play in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and how do our hopes and fears impact our understanding and pursuit of an end to the occupation and equitable resolution to the conflict? This workshop challenges audiences to examine their own hopes and fears and those of Israeli and Palestinian nonviolence leaders and peacebuilders.
Narratives: In this interactive workshop, participants will explore how events shape personal and collective narrative, their own global awareness, and gain an introductory understanding of one of the pivitol events in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through multiple and diverse narratives.
Conceptions of Peace: Participants will examine their own conceptions of peace and compare them to the differing views of Palestinian and Israeli grassroots leaders.
Religion: What is the role of religion in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? Participants will consider the ways in which religion has played a role in this conflict and how it may be a divisive or constructive force in movement building.
