Summer Program Application

Launched in 2000, the Identity-Based Conflict Resolution summer program focuses on identity-based conflicts and proposes an interdisciplinary exchange among scholars and practitioners on this topic. It is managed by the Law Faculty in conjunction with the Bar-Ilan University’s International School.

Students come from all walks of Jewish, Muslim, and Christian society as well as all disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, including legal studies. They learn theoretical insights and gain practical skills that have a wide range of professional relevance.

This program offers four graduate-level courses that focus on various perspectives related to identity-based conflicts in Israel: cultural, psychological, religious, and legal. It teaches how to creatively engage with such conflicts by using simulations, bringing relevant visitors to the program, and touring Israeli sites of conflict resolution.

There are three options – a two-week or four-week online-only program or the full program (a combination of online and on-campus – COVID-19 regulations permitting). Courses can also be taken individually.
