Palestinian Authority. The tour is scheduled for 8 days, 7 nights.
The price of the study-tour includes all the activities on the
ground, lodging, three meals a day and all entry fees.
Our counterparts in Israel and in the Palestinian Authority are
leading social justice and human rights organizations. Topics for
exploration will be: peace and reconciliation, national rights,
poverty incidence areas, housing (construction and demolitions),
child development, civil rights, the Justice system, education and
basic infrastructure conditions. We will visit with the NGOs and each

constituents. The NGOs will also take us to meet and examine their
various projects. On each side of the border, the NGOs will take us
to see case studies, field projects they are working on, as well as
conduct for us other cultural and touring activities. We will meet
with NGO leaders, grass roots activists, government officials,
academics, artists and leaders of dissident movements. In addition we
will visit religious, archeological and cultural sites of interest in
the territories of Israel and the PA.
