Together with MEJDI Tours, the only joint Israeli-Palestinian public policy think tank in the world – the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information (IPCRI) – is offering a fun and rich experience in Israel and Palestine while also giving a face and a voice to those who live here. We hope you will join us!
The aim of this tour is to expose an American audience to the realities of the Israeli Palestinian conflict, while also enabling them to experience the beauty of the region. IPCRI’s access and ability to organize discussions with Palestinian and Israeli politicians and grassroots leaders offers a unique opportunity for the participants to acquire a nuanced political perspective of this region.

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:
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.
