Conflict Resolution from Religious Traditions

Highlights

  • Meet with experts on the ground involved in peacemaking in Jerusalem today.
  • Study traditional approaches to conflict resolution used by Jewish, Christian, and Muslim religious communities.
  • Challenge your assumptions and expand your perspective.
  • Learn alongside a diverse group of law students and practicing professionals.
Israel is a diverse society searching for both new and traditional methods for dispute resolution. Studying law and conflict resolution in Jerusalem offers you a fresh perspective on the interaction of law and religion.

Explore traditional dispute resolution methods – such as Beth Din, Christian and Muslim courts, and Palestinian Sulha – and the ways in which Israel’s religious communities have shaped the values of dispute resolution. You’ll also examine how modern methods for dispute resolution have been adapted to traditional values and cultures.
