Israel And Palestine: Thoughts On Healing The Divide
This course will explore bridging ideas for resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We will thus give less attention to the past and more to the future. Although references to historical events will necessarily be made, the course will focus on ideas that might, at some future time, bridge the large gaps between traditional positions taken by the two peoples. Topics include: the role of Holocaust memory in the conflict; borders and security; future of Jerusalem; Palestinian refugee question; potential for confederation; and negotiated peace/long-term reconciliation.
