Bridges Not Boycotts - On The Record


Are you an aspiring journalist or for a career in media? Do you want to visit Israel and Palestine, with the opportunity to meet leading international journalists in the fields of politics, arts, television and film? This trip is made for you!

We want to hear from students with demonstrable passion for journalism and media. Whether you are a vlogger, documentary creator or editor or writer for a student newspaper, this trip will provide you with the chance to meet professionals working in this field in an area of international interest, and the chance to learn about the complex realities of this region first-hand.

The trip is your five-day all-access pass to Israel, the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Ramallah and more! It provides a unique chance to gain an immersive understanding of Israel and Palestine, and to see how journalists and media start-ups on both sides seek to bridge divides within their own communities and between the two communities, facing challenges and complexities as well as creating opportunities for dialogue and hope.

The trip aims to showcase the positive impact on the ground that journalists and media enterprises can have in helping to solve the issues facing the Israelis and Palestinians, while also providing participants with great insights into the world of media and journalism.

‘Applications for ‘Bridges Not Boycotts: On The Record’ have now closed.

Please contact Gil if you would like more information on future UJS trips to Israel and Palestine.
