Debate for Peace brings together Arab and Jewish students from more than 60 cities and towns around Israel, as well as Palestinian cities, to participate in Model United Nations conferences, where they debate, negotiate and try to resolve the most difficult and pressing challenges in international relations. To learn more about who we are and what we do, see the About page.
If you are a school or individual interested in joining, please see the Join us page for information about conferences and delegations abroad. Learn about all of our conferences and future events at the Events page.
Please consider helping out: we rely on donations and grants to help run conferences. As we are a volunteer-run organization, your donation goes directly to the transportation and food costs of bringing Jewish and Arab students together for MUN and related activities. You can join the crowdfunding campaign here, or make a tax-deductible donation via the IEA (visit the Friends of IEA donations page, choose “Donate via Paypal,” and enter a donation of any amount for the “Debate for Peace” program. You can also follow the directions there to make a tax-deductible donation via check instead).
To see press coverage of the program, see the In the News page.
