The King’s Programme for Middle East Dialogue

The King’s Programme for Middle East Dialogue

Every year ICSR offers six young leaders from Israel and Palestine the opportunity to develop their understanding of their country and region. This is done through a two-month residential programme at ICSR, where the fellows are able to interact with one another and explore contentious ideas in a neutral space.

The idea is for these young leaders to learn more about themselves—and, subsequently, ‘the other’—by engaging in research, debate and constructive dialogue.

This project is unique in its scope and ambition, offering the only fellowship of its kind within a British university. It is aimed at those who occupy positions from which they can shape politics and public opinion in both Israel and Palestine. The intention is to equip a future generation of leaders with a deeper understanding of themselves, their history, and the conflict they are living through, so that they can better appreciate the realities faced by all stakeholders in the region.

Upon completion of their fellowship, graduates of the programme join an ever- expanding alumni group that meets regularly to share ideas, learn new skills, and further develop their understanding of topical issues.
