Arab Neighborhood Project

Today we shared some insights with a group of foreign correspondents into the research project on East Jerusalem Arab neighborhoods conducted by our partner מכון ירושלים למחקרי מדיניות - Jerusalem Institute for Policy Research. The research project surveys social and physical infrastructure in these neighborhoods and includes roundtables in which the findings are discussed with city officials, experts, NGOs and Arab residents with the goal of finding workable solutions to existing problems. Next to a briefing on the social and demographic reality of the Arab neighborhoods and on the findings of the research, we invited the foreign correspondents to a tour through the Arab neighborhoods and visited a community council in Shoafat-Beit Hanina. The tour provided the journalists with the opportunity to see with their own eyes what the most urgent problems at stake are. The group was comprised of representatives of various leading news agencies like BBC, Spanish EFE, AP, NPR and various German print media and more.
