A5 leaflets advertising ICAHD’s extended study tours, run by a partner organisation, offering an opportunity to learn about the situation on an extended visit. Open to participants from around the world.
ICAHD’s extended study tours go beyond the traditional tourist sites as the political realities that affect Palestinians and Israelis are explored. Participants witness the situation on both sides of the divide and travel to different geographical areas. Unique opportunities are provided to gain first-hand, in-depth knowledge and some of the latest analysis on unfolding developments in this region. Participants also meet extensively with Palestinians to hear their stories.
Internationals who join these tours have the opportunity to receive an overview of some of the main issues facing a population living under occupation – house demolitions, displacement, education, water discrimination, child detainees, lack of freedom of movement, women’s issues and the psychological impact that results. Discrimination within the state of Israel, the refugee issue and stories from the Nakba are also included. Hear from Israelis who work for the end of the Occupation, who oppose their government’s violation of international law and call for a just solution that will provide civil rights for all.
Those who join these study tours are provided with personal guidance to help prepare them for their tour so that they get the most from this unique opportunity. Participants are responsible for independently booking their own flights and then meet in Jerusalem at a designated location for the start of the tour. The cost of the tour includes the full tour programme staying at three-star hotels at half-board (bed, breakfast and evening meal), sharing a twin-bedded room with ensuite facilities, guidance from the tour leader, other day-guides and tips. Flights, lunches and travel insurance are not included. A supplement for a single room accommodation is available. Travel is by our own private comfortable coach with an expert local driver from a licensed bus company. The group is kept to a maximum of 18 participants.
