Advancing Trust and Reconciliation Among Palestinians and Israelis Program Brochure

Israel_Palestinian_territories_2008_coverDuring 2007-2008 the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress led a two-pronged effort to foster trust and reconciliation in Israel and the Palestinian territories. Conceived by Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) and endorsed by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, this informal diplomatic effort was supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Ambassador Dennis Ross led an endeavor to foster socio-economic development, including cooperation on health, medicine and science projects in collaboration with Dr. Susan Blumenthal, Center Director of Health and Medicine, and Maxmillian Angerholzer, Executive Director of the Lounsbery Foundation. In a parallel effort, Ambassador Tony Hall and Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, with assistance from the Interdisciplinary Program in Law and Religion at the Catholic University of America, promoted interfaith cooperation in the region.
