IPCRI is an action-oriented think tank managed jointly by Israelis and Palestinians. Our aim is to engage both policy makers and the public at large in promoting a just and sustainable solution to the conflict and an end to the occupation. We develop innovative projects and strategies that promote human rights and address the needs of both peoples. IPCRI concentrates its efforts on three themes:

Screen Shot 2013-01-24 at 2.48.45 PM

Research and Information: IPCRI is a think tank that brings together Palestinian, Israeli, and international experts to discuss pressing issues and develop innovative solutions. IPCRI carries out research and publishes studies and thought-provoking papers to advocate for change among decision makers. II

Conflict Transformation: IPCRI engages Israelis, Palestinians, and Palestinian-Israelis in projects where they can work towards a common goal, create understanding and trust, and work towards a public opinion that supports a just resolution of the conflict.

Shared Environment: IPCRI engages Palestinian and Israeli actors that affect the environment in joint projects because issues like water, waste, and pollution are inherently cross-border. Cooperation in this field contributes to a sustainable future, while cooperation and interdependence can contribute to a just conflict resolution in the long run.
