Israel and Palestine – Ethical Issues

This Study Group will be online.

Israel and Palestine represent two dramatically competing narratives and the conflict between them is one of the most difficult and complicated in the world. It has significant implications for US foreign policy.
It evokes strong emotions from many Jews, Muslims (Arab and non-Arab), and Christians. This course will aim to explore the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a civil and open-minded way with a focus on philosophical issues of justice and human rights.
Strong opinions are welcome but only if accompanied by respect and openness to opposing views. Elias Baumgarten has published articles on this topic, spoken at University of Chicago and American University of Beirut. He has spent time in both Israel and Palestine.
The Study Group meets on Tuesdays Oct. 6 to Nov. 17 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access this Study Group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
