You are invited to hear four prominent peace builders from Palestine and Israel discuss their unique stories and experiences, and respond to such key questions as:

  • Are dialogue programs all talk, no action?
  • What impact can people-to-people programs really have?
  • Can joint projects inspire political action?
  • Do joint projects normalize a situation that is anything but normal?
  • Do cross-border projects benefit one side more than the other?
  • What will peace actually look like?
