Hello from Obada, Allen, and Adomi!
Ever wondered what Israelis and Palestinians hope for when they imagine the future of the region?
Ever wondered who’s more committed to reaching a resolution, the young or the old? Women on men? Palestinians or Israelis?
Well, with your help were are going to find out.
The Hope Map Project is a large-scale survey of Palestinians’ and Israelis’ hope for resolution. We are going to measure the emotional, motivational, cognitive and behavioral manifestations of hope in the two societies and correlate them with demographics like age, gender, and political orientation. Check out what it’s all about in this video. The project’s aim is to chart the first Hope Map of Israel-Palestine, which will be available for decision-makers, the general public, and you.
We are thrilled to announce that next week we are launching our fundraising campaign for the Hope Map Project.
We Need You: Accessing representative samples is expensive. On average, each $15 contributed will expand the study by two participants, one Palestinian and one Israeli. Your donation will play a vital role in the implementation and accuracy of this study.
So… distribute, contribute, share, and be a part of the Hope Map Project!
Stay tuned for more updates. Specific launch date coming soon!
Who are we: The Hope Map Project is a collaborative effort between Obada Shtaya and Oded Adomi Leshem, Israeli and Palestinian researchers at the School of Conflict Analysis and Resolution (S-CAR) at George Mason University. Allen Hester, also from S-CAR, has joined the team as our public engagement expert.
