The FFIPP Educational Summer Programme of 2016 included 26 students from more than 15 universities in Europe, USA and Canada coming together for the summer internship. Students were divided into six locations where they lived in groups, depending on the location of their internships.
Internships took place in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Beit Sahur, Tel Aviv, Hebron and the Negev. The type of internships were varied: from human rights organizations, to working in refugee camps, reporting for journals and media outlets, and teaching children.
For the summer program 2017 we expect to recruit from 25-30 students with diverse backgrounds but sharing a common preoccupation with human rights in the region.
