On Focus

Erbil

Northern Iraq, May 28 — 2014

How does one survive in a politically unstable region? Shortly before the outbreak of IS hostilities against the Kurds, the Young Leaders experienced how the will to survive and modern economic thought prevail in one of the oldest cities in the world. In our everyday encounters we experienced the pursuit of a progressive civil society.

Sderot

Israel, April 30 – 2014

How can a conflict between two sides that claim history for themselves be resolved fairly? The religious, historical and material context of the tensions between Israelis and Palestinians can only be understood first-hand by going there, observing and listening. Global Bridges engaged in intensive discussions with negotiators from both sides. And just how fragile the status quo is between Israelis and Palestinians was demonstrated a few weeks after the trip, when violence broke out again, claiming the lives of countless victims.
