Its approach is interdisciplinary and addresses various perspectives such as psychology, law, culture, and religion. It offers a diverse student environment and consists of: simulations, guest lectures, an internship course (with two full day study tours), seminars, and workshops in providing theoretical insights and conflict resolution training. The Program will also organize various social events such as meetings with Israeli Jewish/Palestinian students, receptions, and cultural activities.

The Summer Program is comprised of the 5 following courses (each 2 credit hours, for two weeks):

  1. From Identity-Based Conflict to Identity-Based Cooperation
  2. Religion and Conflict Resolution
  3. Collective Memory, Narrative and Conflict
  4. Alternative Dispute Resolution and Culture
