About IPCRI

Brit Tzedek v'Shalom is pleased to announce that our 10-city speaking tour with Gershon Baskin and Hanna Sinioria, co-directors of the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Development (IPCRI), will launch March 1 in Atlanta, Georgia. The tour will then proceed across the country: Boston, Western Massachusetts, Ann Arbor, Detroit, San Francisco Bay area, Los Angeles, Denver, New York City, and finally Providence.

Founded in January 1988, at the beginning of the first Intifada, IPCRI serves as a joint Israeli-Palestinian think-tank and "do-tank," aiming to create and develop new concepts and ideas that enrich the political and public discourse in order to influence decision makers and to challenge the current political reality. IPCRI recognizes the rights of the Jewish people and the Palestinian people to fulfill their national interests within the framework of achieving national self-determination within their own states and by establishing peaceful relations between two democratic states living side-by-side.

Biographies of Gershon Baskin and Hanna Siniora:

Gershon Baskin
Gershon Baskin the Israeli Co-Director, co-founded IPCRI following years of experience facilitating Jewish-Arab relations within Israel, during which he worked for Interns for Peace, the Ministry of Education and the Institute for Education for Jewish-Arab Coexistence. Dr. Baskin has published books and articles in the Hebrew, English and Arabic press on a range of topics related to the conflict. During the Premiership of the late Yitzhak Rabin, he served as an outside policy advisor of the peace process. Dr. Baskin was a member of the Jerusalem Experts Committee established by the Israeli Prime Minister's Office during the Final Status Negotiations in 2000-2001.

Hanna Siniora
Hanna Siniora, a member of the Palestinian National Council since 1990, has a long and distinguished history of public service. He was the first Palestinian to officially meet Secretary of State George Schultz as a representative of the occupied territories, facilitating President Reagan's official recognition of the PLO. He served as a member of the Palestinian Jordanian delegation and advised the Palestinian delegation to Madrid in the early 90s. He is the founder and publisher of the Jerusalem Times, a weekly English-language Palestinian paper, and founder and co-chair of the Israeli-Palestinian radio station "All for Peace."

With eleven months of the Bush administration left, the questions remain
1-Will the promise of two states for two peoples be kept?
2-Is an Israeli-Palestinian permanent peace agreement feasible in one year? 
3-What are the issues, the obstacles, and the opportunities ahead?
 
Baskin and Siniora say that it is possible.  They will talk about what needs to be done and how. They will also present the work of IPCRI and on the contribution and achievements of civil society Track II efforts towards peace making.
