Solidarity of Nations - Achvat Amim

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/solidarity%20of%20nations.jpg

Program Description

Achvat Amim, which means "solidarity of nations" in Hebrew, is a new 5 month volunteer experience in Jerusalem that directly engages with the reality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, based on the core value of self-determination for all peoples. Achvat Amim is renewing the conversation on Jewish Peoplehood and Zionism for the 21st century. Together, we build a dynamic learning community in which we explore and shape Jewish culture and identity as individuals and as part of a greater whole, engage with the challenging realities in Israel and the West Bank, and build on the rich history and traditions of which we are a living part.

 

Achvat Amim is a framework for meaningful volunteer work with leading Israeli human rights organizations, including Rabbis for Human Rights, which do grassroots work with Israelis and Palestinians in and around Jerusalem. Achvat Amim focuses on developing practical skills in community development and education through intensive volunteer projects and engaging with social change and human rights movements. The program combines learning programs, outdoor experiences, seminars, and trips around the country with working on real projects with leading human rights organizations.

 

Join us in building a future rooted in the Jewish values of Tzedek (Justice), Shalom (Peace), and Achvat Amim (Solidarity of Nations).

Haifa University MA in Diplomacy

Program Description

The dynamics of the contemporary, complex, interconnected and highly-charged international environment presents new challenges for scholars, policy analysts and decision makers, both at the global level and in the context of the Middle East. Against this backdrop, the MA Program in Diplomacy Studies is intended to elucidate the role of diplomacy as a main vehicle and mechanism for systematically addressing multilateral issues, which can no longer be effectively dealt with exclusively from a narrow unilateral or bilateral vantage point.
 
The focus on the role of collaborative diplomatic mechanisms is designed to provide students with new insights, concepts and analytical tools for fully understanding the enhanced functions of diplomacy in this new setting. The program in Diplomacy Studies is primarily intended for practitioners, who are employed in a variety of public and private international, transnational and multilateral organizations, future diplomats, and interested academics abroad and in Israel. At the completion of the program, students will receive an MA in Political Science, with a specialization in Diplomacy Studies.

Highlights

An important element of the program will be the simulated analysis of concrete diplomatic decision games and action games. In the course of this simulation, the students will experiment with a range of diplomatic (and strategic) concepts, techniques and scenarios in a controlled and structured effort to emulate real-time crisis situations, with emphasis on the mechanisms and tools for mitigating and defusing them.
