Making Peace: Congress of the People at Rabin Square
On Friday March 17th, world-renowned negotiation facilitator Dr. Sapir Handelman led a Peace Congress of 2,000 Israelis and Palestinians in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square. Dr. Handelman guided passionate negotiators to arrive at solutions for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Several EMIS students from the Charney Resolution Center also participated in the 2,000-strong negotiations – just a few weeks after Dr. Handelman led the students in their first ever Peace Talks Simulation at the Charney Resolution Center.
Dr. Handelman and his organization, Minds of Peace, have successfully led 32 Israeli-Palestinian public negotiating congresses all over the world. The March 17th congress was among the largest of its kind.
“Only with the involvement of the people is peacemaking possible.” - Dr. Sapir Handelman
