Advanced Political Course Meeting with Khalil Shikaki

In March, participants at the advanced political course, part of the USAID funded EDP program, met with Khalil Shikaki, a Professor of Political Science and Director of the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research.

Shikaki said: “The percentage of those who support peace among both societies, is higher than what the sides actually think. According to recent polls, both Palestinians and Israelis believe that only around 20% of people from the other side want peace. However, when asked about their own choice, the percentage is much higher".
The meeting was made possible through the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development.
