Palestine/Israel: Prospects for Peace with Justice
According to Global Exchange the root of violence in the region is caused by the Occupation and the complete disregard of international law and UN resolutions. Global Exchange believes that if U.S. citizens would really understand the reality of what is happening in the region and were exposed to the amount of dialogue the Israeli public is exposed to, there could be introduced steps to change the one-sided policies towards Israel.
The fact-finding delegation to Palestine & Israel strives to further the U.S. public's understanding of the conflict and the region's realities by giving people first-hand exposure to the human rights abuse occuring in the Occupied Territories.
Participants have the chance to hear a diverse spectrum of Palestinian and Israeli voices and learn about their understanding of the conflict and hopes for a solution.
