This is a unique experiential learning event for Arab and Jewish Diaspora communities in the US. One of the goals of the conference is to examine the influence members of Jewish and Arab Diaspora communities have on both peacemaking and war making and how their personal interactions in the event might shed light on some of the deeper sources of conflict and potential for a just peace.
This very compelling and unusual work allows individuals to examine the unconscious dynamics at play in groups which can have very significant impact on the difference between what groups and organizations intend to accomplish and what they actually accomplish. I invite you to look at the web site http://www.diasporaforpeace.com and forward this notice to others who may be interested in attending or supporting the conference.
Authority, Leadership and Peacemaking will be useful for teachers, activists, academics (faculty and students), clergy, leaders, conflict resolution and mental health professionals, and all those with a serious interest in the issue, including those not of Jewish or Arab heritage. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
