Coexistence in the Middle East (CME) is also offered as an academic program that offers participants the opportunity to experience the challenge of human diversity through a series of academic field trips and lectures, while earning academic credits at the Rothberg International School (RIS) of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, ranked one of the World's top 100 universities. Participants may enroll in one or more courses of our summer program, or take part in the intensive two-week session:
For four years in a row, "Coexistence in the Middle East" has been one of the most popular programs among RIS summer courses. Following this success, this summer CME will be expanded into a 9-credit program that is comprised of the following three 3-credit courses:
July Session: July 3-27, 2017 -
Narratives and Realities: Inside the Israeli Palestinian Conflict
Gain insight into the status quo of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict its complexity, and its possible evolutions and solutions through exposure to a wide range of narratives, realities, and initiatives.
July Session: July 3-27, 2017 -
Israel & the Post-Arab Spring: An Interactive View
Learn first-hand about the developing challenges opportunities, and forces shaping the post-Arab Spring Middle East through discussions with regional players and experts.
- August Session: August 3-16, 2017 - Religion in the Holy Land: The Role of Faith in Peace and Conflict - View Syllabus Explore the crucial and sometimes contradictory roles that religion might play as an obstacle to peace or resource for peacebuilding within and outside the Holy Land.
Since these three courses are designed to complement each other, we strongly recommend participants to take them together. However, participants have the option to enroll in only one or two courses as well as combine them with additional summer programs at RIS, such as InnovNation, which offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the high-tech industries and entrepreneurial ecosystem of the Start-Up Nation.
Our intensive two-week session offers 3-credits and includes many of the field trips and lectures to students, faculty members, diplomats, policy makers, and other professionals who are unable to attend the CME summer program. Professionals or participants who do not require academic credits will be exempt from the academic requirements and will be able to obtain an active participation certificate.
