Now Recruiting: The King’s Programme for Middle East Dialogue

11/10/2017

ICSR is offering six young leaders from Israel and Palestine the opportunity to come to London for a period of two months in order to develop their ideas on how to further mutual understanding in their region. These young leaders will learn more about themselves and “the other” by engaging in research, debate and constructive dialogue in a neutral academic environment. The programme will start in February 2018.

Whilst at King’s College London they will critically examine both their own personal histories and that of their own societies in order to have a clear understanding of the historical context and current realities faced by their own people so that they can share this with their counterparts and thus educate each other.

This Fellowship is aimed at those who occupy positions from which they can shape politics and public opinion in Israel and Palestine– typically from government, business, academia, and the media. Applicants must be graduates; based in their countries of origin at the time of their application; and fluent English speakers.

Fellows will be based at ICSR, King’s College London and receive a stipend to cover their accommodation, living costs and travel. They are expected to complete a short paper that reflects on how they feel their understanding of their history and that of the conflict has changed, and thus how their personal narrative has evolved. Through academic and personal engagement with the other Fellows they will be challenged to develop their views, articulate their beliefs, as well as those of the other side. In addition, they will promote information and education about issues in the region by making themselves available for debate and consultation.

Application deadline is November 12th.
