Understanding the Israel-Palestine Conflict: Educational Responses

Educational Responses to the Israel-Palestine Conflict

Since early October 2023, a group of concerned colleagues has met regularly to plan education responses to events in Israel-Palestine. Before we could organize a first event, the group recognized that, given our participants' multiple perspectives and experiences of the conflict, we needed a set of common principles and shared parameters.

Building consensus within the group on our shared principles, approaches and goals enabled us to practice empathic listening, engagement with deeply held positions and some pains, as well as constructive problem solving to find common ground.

Our upcoming and past events deploy these principles to balance understanding of the conflict with empathy for how the conflict impacts all members of our community. We use this balance to open space for civil, respectful dialogue on difficult topics.
