FAU Diplomacy Program Luncheonette

Florida Atlantic University President John Kelly hosted members of the Leon Charney Diplomacy Program to a luncheon to celebrate the program’s accomplishments. In November, the Diplomacy Program placed first overall out of sixty competing universities at the National Model United Nations simulation in Washington, D.C. The program competes this spring in Nationals in New York City and in the Model European Union simulation hosted by the University of Indiana.

The Leon Charney Diplomacy Program, which trains students in world affairs, dispute resolution and debate, was established in 1996. To date, the program has won thirty-two national and international awards for academic excellence. In 2017, the program was named to honor the diplomatic legacy of Leon Charney.

Israeli-Palestinian Congress of High School Students by Sapir Handelman

On October 18, 2018 the Charney Resolution Center and the Minds of Peace NGO (Non-Governmental Organizations) led the two parts of an Israeli-Palestinian Public Negotiating Congress made up of teenagers. A delegation of 25 Palestinian high-school students met a delegation of 25 Israeli high-school students in Tel-Aviv to discuss, debate, and negotiate solutions to their current situation. The negotiations took place in Ironi Dalet – one of the Israeli’s high schools. The students led the discussions around three negotiating tables by themselves without intervention from the teachers. The negotiators succeeded in concluding a preliminary agreement on Trust Building Measures and the Suspension of the Violent Struggle. The agreements included ad-hoc solutions to urgent problems such as: Violence, The Gaza Crisis, Temple Mount, and the expansion of the settlements. More to come in 2019.

Peace Simulation between Ironi Daled and Jerusalem School

We organized a peace simulation between two high schools in Israel, “Ironi Daled” (located in Tel Aviv) and “Jerusalem School”. The simulation was led by Sapir Handelman, main facilitator and Chairman of the Board of “Minds of Peace”- a non-profit organization that provides a platform for peace negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis.

We are hopeful that these amazing, young individuals will reach agreements that show the true meaning of change in the region and on a global perspective!
