Field trips to destinations of geographical importance, conferences at focal points of world history, forums about issues with substance and relevant participants are the signature of our event calendar.

On Focus


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.
