July 2016 Delegation
MILITARIZATION & PATHS TO JUSTICE
July 17 - 30, 2016
The Militarization and Pathways to Justice delegation explored Palestinian and Israeli efforts to achieve peace with justice.
The purpose of this delegation - the 58th guided by Interfaith Peace-Builders since 2001 - was to educate North Americans about the region and deepen their understanding of its conflicts.
The delegation explored the effects of militarization on Israeli and Palestinian communities and shed light on alternative paths to justice - both those imagined and practiced - charted by Palestinians and Israelis on the ground.
Participants on this IFPB delegation had the unique opportunity to hear directly from Palestinians and Israelis regarding their hopes for peace and the role of the United States, the US government, and other international actors, in promoting a resolution to the conflict.
Interfaith Peace-Builders believes in the power of eye-witness experience and transformation. Given the opportunity to speak directly with Palestinians and Israelis, delegates return to the United States better informed, more energized, and with a deeper understanding of the possibilities for true justice in the Middle East.
Upon their return to the United States, delegates share their experiences with the public, the media, and their political representatives.
