Joint Israeli – Palestinian Summer Programme on: Political Science and Middle East Studies
It is my pleasure to announce the official opening of registration to the Galillee College 2009 summer programmes (July 1st – August 4th ), http://www.galilcol.ac.il/page.asp?id=17 .
On August 5th we concluded the third Galillee College summer programme. We had 30 participants interested in learning about the complicities and possibilities of the region. I know that we managed to sharpen and deepen their understanding and they left with far more knowledge about the ME in general and the roots and present situation of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in particular.
NEVERTHELESS, we are constantly revising the programme to be even better, and have taken into consideration some of the important issues that were brought up in the concluding evaluation session, such as devoting more time for feelings; the young men and women experienced here situations that needed to be professionally addressed. As well as the knowledge, sights, voices and opinions, this course provided them with an emotional aspect that at times can be overwhelming.  This summer we had one group process meeting that was very good but because of the need expressed by the participants, we have decided that next year there will be three such meetings during the five weeks programme that will allow the participants to discuss the emotional aspects. With a Certified Group Facilitator they will have an opportunity to talk about their feelings in a free manner, to discuss some of the conflicts this course brings up in each of them and to give them an opportunity to listen to other group members.
Another thing that was brought up and will be handled differently in the next summer programme is that the tours were too “touristy” and didn´t have the right perspective for political science and ME studies students and professionals. Next year we will be looking for the right people to deliver the tours with the right perspective.
Students and faculty who are interested in the next year´s summer programmes should contact the Programme Director – Ms. Shoshi Norman e-mail: snorman@galilcol.ac.il 
Sincerely yours,
Dr. Mahmoud Yazbak - Academic Director
