Russian-Speaking Israeli's Discuss the Conflict

This weekend, we held a seminar for 25 young political activists that are members of the Russian speaking community in Israel. The seminar included a number of lectures on the Israeli Palestinian conflict regarding various issues such as security, demographics, and democracy. Participants also learned about the Northern Ireland conflict and the role civil society played in bringing it to a peaceful conclusion. Learning that peace is possible and has succeeded in the past inspired our participants to take action in promoting peace.
