Can Dialogue be part of the resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict? The Israel-Palestine conflict is a long-lasting conflict, often perceived as very deadlocked. Under the umbrella of the project „Vacation from War – Dialogues across Borders“, activists from Israel and Palestine organize dialogue seminars for young Israelis and Palestinians every year. How does getting to know the perspective of the „Others“ change one’s own view of the conflict, the political situation on the ground or even the view of personal and collective history? To what extent does dialogue pave the way for joint conflict resolution?
Israeli and Palestinian coordinators of the project share their experiences, the challenges of their political work on the ground and their perspectives on the current political situation. Furthermore they will reveal why they think it is necessary to have dialogue seminars specifically for women* and what makes them so special, including the significance of adopting a feminist perspective in both the seminar setting and the broader field of conflict transformation.
The event will be held in English; questions and comments in the discussion can be voiced in German and will be translated by the facilitation.Please note Corona restrictions of Nrodrhein-Westfalen, City of Köln and the Naturfreundehaus Köln Kalk.
