General Description: IPCRI was launched to promote dialogue at various levels between the Israeli and Palestinian civil societies with the aim of advancing peace on the basis of the two-state solution. IPCRI is one of the bridge-building initiatives that have survived the onslaught of the Al Aqsa intifada and the associated restrictions placed by both parties on dialogue. IPCRI was founded on the principle that the center should be a joint partnership between Israeli and Palestinian intellectuals, with its governance and management built on co-leadership, reflecting a conviction that peace-building must be a joint and bipartisan effort (assisted by the international community). IPCRI undertakes a variety of information activities and sponsors joint Israeli-Palestinian forums.
