Abstract:

Conflict and Conscience is a collection of interviews that introduces readers to 25 graduates of the School for Peace, an non-profit dedicated to building peace among Palestinians and Jews in Israel. Interviewer and editor Nava Sonnenschein is a founding member of the village of Neve Shalom (Oasis of Peace), a collaborative venture where an equal number of Jewish and Palestinian Israelis live co-operatively. As part of their mission, Neve Shalom's leaders conducts courses in peacemaking for college students at different Israeli universities. After facilitating these courses for over 25 years, Sonnenschein states that the effort of bringing together Jewish Israelis and Palestinians from both sides of the Green Line - either in Neve Shalom or on the campuses of Tel Aviv University, Ben-Gurion University, and other institutions - can be overwhelming. But she and her colleagues press on because of the conversations they facilitate and the long-term changes these conversations introduce to participants' worldviews. "Seeing the transformation undergone by the participants is a re-energizing, amazing moment when something perceptibly shifts for a participant or for an entire group." In the mid-2000s, she began to interview graduates of one or more school for Peace courses, and conducted these interviews through 2015 in order to "look more deeply into the nature of the changes [she] witnessed." She selected the 25 strongest interviews to publish in Conflict and Conscience, and bracketed the text with a scholarly introduction by social psychologist Tamar Saguy and her own concluding interpretive essay. The resulting volume is both a scholarly resource and an inspiration that "lends strength to human rights and peace organizations."
