Despite IPCRI’s best efforts, we unfortunately have not raised enough funds for this project to start any activities, thus we have not achieved what we expected yet. We had originally planned to influence both high-level decision-makers and the public at large trough providing targeted, in-depth reports about political developments; the reports about the Palestinian territories would be provided in Hebrew to Israeli leaders and the repots about Israel would be provided in Arabic to Palestinian leaders.
Although we did not successfully fund this project through crowd sourcing, we still believe this project is extremely important in breaking barriers and misconceptions between Israelis and Palestinians. We also think now is a critical time for this work as negotiations between the two parties are currently on-going and decisions made now will affect an eventual peace agreement, or the rise of violence and instability in the region. Thus, IPCRI is turning to alternative measures to fund this project. Already, a full proposal has been submitted to many donors including the Journalists and Writers’ Foundation and the European Endowment for Democracy.
We thank everyone who has shown interest in this project and support our work to bring a just and sustainable peace to Israel and the Palestinian territories. We hope to receive full funding for this project in 2014 and achieve our goal of contributing to a better understanding of “the other” among Israelis and Palestinians, in order to promote cooperation and peace in the region.
