Envisioning the International Fund for Israeli-Palestinian Peace

A roundtable with Executive Director Joel Braunold and Dr. Ned Lazarus

Monday, July 17th | 4 – 6 PM
Jerusalem International YMCA
King David 26

As many of you know, ALLMEP has inspired legislation in the U.S. Congress and the British parliament endorsing the establishment of an international fund for Israeli-Palestinian peace building.

Yet what would this fund look like, if and when our campaign succeeds?

Please join Dr. Ned Lazarus and Joel Braunold in Jerusalem for a roundtable session dedicated to envisioning the structure and strategy of a prospective International Fund for Israeli-Palestinian Peace.

Ned and Joel will share insights from their recent trip to Belfast, where they studied the work of the International Fund for Ireland in strengthening the role of civil society in the Northern Ireland peace process – and solicit your input regarding whether and how this successful model can be adapted for our work in the Middle East.
