The City of Jerusalem: Ideas and Images

A course developed by Dr. Loren Lerner

Why I Developed This Course on Jerusalem

The Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies was established in 2011 thanks to a generous gift by the Azrieli Foundation to a University in Montreal. In 2013, as a member of the Advisory Board and after a sabbatical in Jerusalem, I developed this art history course for the Minor in Israel Studies, the first and only undergraduate program of its kind in Canada. My objectives were:

  • To examine forms of artistic expression including architecture, sculpture, painting and other media from across a variety of cultural identities so as to encourage respect for the art of these different communities 
  • To demonstrate how an expanse of history depends mainly on how one reads the evidence
  • To encourage an understanding of human experiences from the viewpoint of others who interpret the world in significantly dissimilar ways
  • To integrate a large historical perspective that reveals the changes in the art of particular eras, as well as the continuities of religious, ethical and social values
  • To explore artistic productions and cultural practices that construct identity, influence public discourse and act as catalysts for social and political changes

See interview on Imagining Jerusalem website:

As a recently retired professor, I share with you the lectures I developed, the readings consulted, and the annual student journal I produced which contain the very best essays and works of art by the students in that year’s class.

The International Program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation (MA in Public Policy) was launched as an English language program in 2009, based on the existing Hebrew language program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation which was established in 2003.

This three semester program aims to offer students around the world the opportunity to study the fundamentals of international conflict resolution at its core. In response to the ever-increasing recognition in the academic world of the importance of conflict resolution, both as a credible research field and a field of practice, we intend to equip our students with the necessary academic and practical tools to address the assessment, management, and resolution of conflicts.
We are striving to attract a diverse student body from all around the world, to create a dynamic and diverse environment comprised of a spectrum of experiences and perspectives.

We put together an interdisciplinary curriculum that will expose the students to a comprehensive study of conflicts and their resolution from diverse perspectives; ranging from international law to psychological and economic perspectives, every relevant field will be incorporated during the first semester. During the second and third semesters, students will be able to choose from a variety of classes according to their interests. During the studies special focus will be placed on combining practical experience to the theoretical knowledge through simulations and workshops. The students will be guided throughout their studies by the negotiation and mediation skills that they will gradually cultivate. In addition, we are planning to offer a workshop on the UN and the Middle East: during the entire year, different UN representatives will introduce our students to their office’s role and goals, giving them insight about what happens “in the real world.” This collaboration will both enrich classroom dialogue and complement the students’ experience and in–depth research.

The faculty is comprised of outstanding lecturers from Tel Aviv University and other prestigious universities and expert practitioners, who will provide our students with the extensive knowledge and tools needed for venturing into the field of conflict resolution. Many of our faculty members have been engaged in historical and present Middle East negotiations, and are committed to sharing with our students the intricacies of their hands on experience.

Our program has taken particular interest in encouraging and facilitating students to enrol in internships during their studies that correspond to their interests. Israel is home to an array of organizations committed to achieving conflict resolution at different levels. We believe the students’ involvement in their dynamic and innovative projects will add a unique dimension to their academic experience.

Students will investigate ethno-national, cultural and religious conflicts in deeply divided societies.

These perspectives will enrich the students’ understanding of conflicts within and among societies and nations. The curriculum also examines specific case studies of conflict and uses the Middle East and Israel as a living classroom for empirical learning.

This unique program includes a mandatory practicum/internship, which increases students’ experience in grassroots initiatives in the field. It furnishes exposure to NGO’s working toward Arab-Jewish and Palestinian-Israeli coexistence and Middle East peace processes. 

Field trips give students a first-hand acquaintance with the reality of government agencies and non-government organizations that are dealing with conflict management issues on a daily basis.

The University of Haifa is known for faculty expertise in the fields of coexistence, conflict-settlement and peace processes and is a center for research of these areas in Israel.

The dynamics of the contemporary, complex, interconnected and highly-charged international environment present new challenges for scholars, policy analysts and decision makers, both at the international level and in the context of the Middle East. Against this backdrop, the new MA Program in Diplomacy Studies is intended to elucidate the role of diplomacy as a main vehicle and mechanism for systematically addressing the broad cluster of issues that impinge upon the entire region, and which can no longer be effectively dealt with exclusively from a narrow unilateral or bilateral vantage point.
The focus on the role of collaborative diplomatic mechanisms is designed to provide students with insights derived from concepts and analytical tools taken from the disciplines of international relations theory, as well as from the fields of strategic studies, international economics and other related areas.

The program is intended to enable students to identify effective solutions to a broad range of political, cultural and economic problems with which they will be faced and be continuously involved (both regionally and globally) as bureaucrats, officials and decision makers, in the context of an array of complex negotiating situations and points of decision.

The one-year program is taught over three consecutive semesters from October through August. The language of instruction is English.

Program Outline

All courses are required and will be completed over three consecutive semesters, each of which will comprise 12 hours of studies:
1. Semester A: Introductory courses in diplomatic studies, and diplomacy and communication.
2. Semester B: Three advanced seminars, which will apply the theoretical concepts and tools introduced and developed in the first semester.
3. Semester C: Implementation of the insights, concepts, theories and data provided in the first two semesters as the platform and springboard for simulating the actual dynamics of multilateral diplomacy. Emphasis will be placed on the role of diplomatic methods and strategies in the quest for conflict resolution and regional stability. This semester will include a workshop on the practice of public diplomacy, which will involve both practitioners and diplomats as an integral part of the workshop.

An important element of the program will be the simulated analysis of concrete diplomatic decision games and action games. In the course of this simulation, the students will experiment with a range of diplomatic (and strategic) concepts, techniques and scenarios in a controlled and structured effort to emulate real-time crisis situations, with emphasis on the mechanisms and tools for mitigating and defusing them.
