Academic Delegation Visit to Belfast and Dublin, 26th – 30th November 2017

Thursday, November 30, 2017

Between the 26th and 30th of November 2017 Forward Thinking facilitated the visit of an influential Palestinian academic delegation from the Arab American University’s Centre for Conflict Resolution and  Development  Studies  to  Belfast  and  Dublin.

The  aim  of  the  visit  was  threefold:  to  enable participants to explore the  successes  and  ongoing  challenges of the  Irish  Peace  Process,  drawing insights into parallels with their own context; to broaden and deepen understanding of the realities of the Irish experience, to support research and teaching on the subject in Palestine; and to develop relationships between Northern Irish, Irish and Palestinian higher education institutions.
