What happens when you bring two people to discuss the most complex conflict of the century, the Palestinian Israeli conflict? What about if these two individuals are a Palestinian and an Israeli? Driven by their commitment for conflict resolution, peace, and recognition of the other, Saed Abu-Haltam and Maria Goldin, Palestinian and Israeli KPU students, respectively, have been regularly discussing the conflict and looking for ways to explore common beliefs and unshakeable differences. However, with the right environment and inspiring personal stories, their lives have transformed and led them to understand and value the legitimacy of the other. At KPU’s Sociology and Criminology conference, Saed and Maria will put forward ideas and strategies that they think are crucial to achieving peace in the region and in their states. And yes, that means that they both believe peace is possible!
