Prof. Dan Ariely |  There is madness in logic

We are accustomed to thinking that ideologies or land disputes are the real issues behind the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, but what if we are completely wrong? Prof. Dan Arieli, the “Rock Star” of behavioral economy and one of the most famous lecturers worldwide, will talk about the irrational processes that influence political issues.

Riman Barkat |  The Jerusalem bubble

Sometimes you need to distance yourself from home in order to gain perspective: after she returned from studying for many years in Cairo, Riman Barkat looked at Jerusalem, her city of birth, with different eyes, and her heart was broken by the depth of the fracture she saw between the two neighbouring, Israeli and Palestinian communities. In her lecture Barkat, who is a Palestinian peace activist from East Jerusalem, will tell us why she thinks that dividing Jerusalem will rekindle real hope for reconciliation and how this is specifically related to hipsters.

Michal Engelberg | Disputes are good for skin

Will confronting a person with the deep, concealed meaning of his political choices make him change them? Michal Engelberg will tell us about a real psychological experiment that was carried out in Israel, and which exhibits results that are nothing short of revolutionary. She will point out an exciting new direction for the near future.

Prof. Eran Halperin |  Imagine something you have never seen

Countless struggles are consuming Israel: from the large rallies for social justice, passing through the #MeToo campaign, to the demonstrations against corruption. Only one “tiny” issue was forgotten by the general public: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Will this collective amnesia cause us to miss a golden opportunity for resolving this conflict? Prof. Eran Halperin, winner of the Erik Eriksson Early Career Award (awarded to the youngest, most promising researcher in the world), has dedicated the last years exactly to this question and he came up with brilliant answers.

Roi Ravitzky | Allah is a great solution

For many years, we became accustomed to the idea that the struggle for peace, in its political significance, is the struggle of secular people alone. But why? Roi Ravitzky, manager of the Religious Peace Initiative, which organizes discrete meetings between Sheikhs from Hamas and Rabbis from Jewish Settlements, will tell us what he has learned from the historical meeting he organized between the founder of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam and the Chief Rabbi of Israel, and how God, or at least his representatives on Earth, could lead to reconciliation in the near future.

Prof. Ruth Feldman | Everything starts in the sandpit

"Children see how their parents argue, and during their adulthood, they bring along this style to their workplaces, loves and wars¨. In a fascinating lecture, based on a research that she carried out on the subject of raising children in Israeli and Palestinian families, Prof. Ruth Feldman, a psychologist and a brain researcher from the IDC Herzliya and Yale University, will reveal how education gaps can be resolved by hormones, what we can learn from social brain research and why Ehud Barak never had a chance to bring peace.

Maya Savir |  Is our dispute something special?

What is the connection between seaweed and reconciliation? The author Maya Savir traveled to South Africa and Rwanda in connection to her philanthropic work, with the objective of teaching her partners there how to grow the nutritious spirulina seaweed as a solution to the serious issue of famine. She found communities who had surprising reconciliation processes following long and bloody disputes, which seemed to be unsolvable, and asked to learn from them what reconciliation actually is. However, are we really ready and prepared to learn from the experience of others?

Research

How can you measure hope? Apparently, it is possible!

The Opening Event will be accompanied by a unique research, the first of its kind, lead by the Applied Center for the Psychology of Social Change – The Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya. The research aims to examine the effectiveness of “Have you seen the horizon lately?” and the influence of the diverse contents provided therein. Event participants who will consent to volunteer and join the research will answer diverse questionnaires, before and after the event (long and short-term), in order to examine their indices of hope and involvement, alongside various aspects of emotions and perceptions related to the issue of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
