24-11-2017: The Future of the Palestinian-Israeli Joint Activities

Palestinian-Israeli grassroots activities have been overshowed by the People-to-People Program (P2P) established as part of Oslo agreement II. By imposing an apolitical agenda, this program distorted the Palestinian-Israeli relations and cooperation that addressed the political reality, as in the case of the first Intifada, and the systematic injustices. The aim of this workshop is to discuss how P2P links Palestinian-Israeli relations to normalisation, and limits such initiatives to the interests and participation of an elite”
