About us

Since 2020, ROPES has been working to leverage the Abraham Accords to introduce trilateral partnerships (Israeli-Palestinian-regional) in areas such as education and the environment, and to rebuild long-term momentum toward a conflict-ending Middle East agreement.

Inspired by the Arab Peace Initiative, ROPES was founded in 2017 in order to connect forward-thinking Israeli and Palestinian emerging leaders with likeminded peers across the Arab world.

The organization believes in the possibility of a post-conflict Middle East–one in which the State of Israel and a State of Palestine are fully integrated into the broader region–and it is working to rally emerging leaders across the Arab world who share that vision to join forces with the Israelis and Palestinians already fighting for it.

Our Mission

Founded in 2017, ROPES works to connect forward-thinking Israeli and Palestinian emerging leaders in politics, business, and other fields with like-minded peers across the Arab world.

Our growing alumni network includes members of parliament, diplomats, journalists, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and other young changemakers from Israel, the West Bank and Gaza, and ten Arab countries.

We are united by our vision of a post-conflict Middle East in which the State of Israel and a well-governed, territorially viable State of Palestine are fully integrated into the region.
