ROPES delegations are a great first step to getting them involved in the peacebuilding process. This past summer, ROPES brought a one-week pilot delegation of emerging leaders to visit Israel and the West Bank. The participants–representing the UAE, Jordan, Morocco, Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia–visited East and West Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron, Bethlehem, Rawabi, Israel’s northern borders, Nazareth, Haifa, and Tel Aviv-Jaffa. In the process, they gained a first-hand understanding of the situation on the ground and connected with peacebuilders on both sides of the Green Line who are fighting to make things better. ROPES plans to bring four specialized delegations–in politics, business, environment, and media–over the course of 2023.
