MILITARISM, ANTI-MILITARISM, NONVIOLENCE AND PEACE-BUILDING IN THE ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN CONFLICT

During this week, we will learn about ways in which some Israelis and some Palestinians have opposed violence as a means of confrontation with the Other. In particular, our focus will be on the history conscientious objection for Israelis and on nonviolence for Palestinians. In this respect, we will discuss what is nonviolence and if the First Intifada could be considered as an example of nonviolent resistance. We will also discuss in which ways nonviolent protest can lead to peace-building between conflicting population groups.

GENDER IN THE ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN CONFLICT

The objectives of this unit are to look at peace-building activities in Israeli and Palestinian civil society through women's activism and to discuss whether a perspective of gender studies can help understand peace-building activities. In this respect, a small section of this unit is focused on queer activism and on the LGBT community's stand on human rights.

RELIGION AND SECULARISM IN ISRAEL AND AMONG PALESTINIANS

Religion is a central factor in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, not only because Jerusalem (as a space and as a symbol) is one of the centres where the conflict unfolds, but also because it has been often used as a pretext to strengthen and harden uncompromising standings on both sides. In this section, we will look at religion as and instrument to build  bridges between enemy camps, looking at organizations, institutions and experiences that have used religion in this sense.

MEDIA AND COMMUNICATION FOR PEACE-BUILDING ACROSS ISRAEL AND THE PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES

This is a rather heterogeneous unit as it combines different aspects of what goes under the term “media”, from radio to TV, from cinema to theater. Of course, to navigate through these many cases, one needs to be selective (otherwise, this weekly unit would last a month). For this reason, I have chosen a couple of examples from the world of independent/pirate radios, one from that of TV broadcasting, two from cinema (although, as you can see in the filmography in each week, many films can be considered part of this collective effort towards peace building) and a discussion of the role of some theatrical productions in the Occupied Territories.

WELFARE ACROSS BORDERS - HEALTH AND EDUCATION

Welfare is a very broad category and its standard definition is “the provision of a minimal level of well-being and social support for all citizens, sometimes referred to as public aid.” According to various political traditions and historical contexts, welfare can be dispensed through state institutions, or it can be provided from below, through civil society organizations and NGOs. The funding for welfare can come from the State, private or public donors or international aid. Given the complexity of the Israeli-Palestinian situation, we analyze here welfare measures in two major fields, health and education, and we examine a few major examples where the role of providing health or education resulted in an a un/successful coexistence or cooperation. However, for reasons of space and opportunity, we will leave out of this unit measures for poverty relief or food production/distribution, refugee issues, programs related to children’s rights and women’s empowerment.
