Gershon Baskin, the Israeli CEO and founder of the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information (IPCRI), will be in Tucson on October 30-31. Come learn about IPCRI and what is happening in Jerusalem from someone who is there and working on pathways to peace. Current Sponsors include Ner Tamid and PeaceWalk Tucson. Gershon Baskin initiated the founding of IPCRI in 1988 following ten years in the field of Jewish-Arab relations within Israel, at Interns for Peace, the Ministry of Education, and as Executive Director of the Institute for Education for Jewish-Arab Coexistence. Gershon has published books and hundreds of articles in the Hebrew, English and Arabic press about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict including: A Model Interim Agreement, Aspects of Internal Security During the Interim Period, The Future of Jerusalem, How to Conduct Business in the Palestinian Territories, The Future of the Israeli Settlements in Final Status Negotiation, and more. Gershon meets regularly with Israeli and Palestinian policy makers as well as international diplomats and organizations. He was a member of the Jerusalem Experts Committee established by the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office during the Final Status Negotiations in 2000-2001. IPCRI is a joint institution of Israelis and Palestinians dedicated to the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the basis of a “two-states for two peoples” solution. IPCRI recognizes the “two-states for two peoples” solution as the ultimate fulfillment of the national strategic and security interests of the two peoples. IPCRI therefore 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.IPCRI website: http://www.ipcri.org
