No amount of reading, attending lectures or watching films can convey a genuine understanding of the facts on the ground compared to being there.

ICAHD and the international chapters in the UK, USA, Finland and Germany recommend these study tours that are grounded in ICAHD analysis. They offer unique time with Dr Jeff Halper, ICAHD’s Founder, who sets the scene by describing the current reality in Palestine/Israel within its historical and political context.

  • ICAHD-recommended issue-based study tours

  • Grounded in ICAHD analysis

  • Visit both the Occupied Palestinian Territory and Israel

  • A total of around 30 encounters

  • Daily debriefing sessions

  • Hotel accommodation in Bethlehem and Nazareth

Participants will visit Palestinians dealing with all the constraints and the suffering brought about from living under Israel’s Occupation and Apartheid policies:

  • the demolition of their homes and loss of lands
  • deliberate impoverishment,
  • the inability to move freely
  • issues of water discrimination
  • child imprisonment
  • the psychological impact of generations existing under violent military occupation
  • as well as issues of women’s rights, traumatised families and refugees.

As Jeff Halper explains, “The tour is not merely a litany of suffering; it is inspiring. You will meet people who refuse to give in, Palestinians who are sumud -steadfast- and who resist their oppression in a myriad of ways. You will also meet their Israeli partners working to end the Occupation, both politically and “on the ground.” And you will explore ways to resolve the conflict that are just, workable and creative, enabling you to return home as a strong advocate for peace in your own community.”

These itineraries are individual, developed over nearly twenty years and come with hundreds of recommendations from people world-wide. The tours provide engagement with inspiring Palestinians and Israelis and meeting them will change your life. Travel south into the Negev, through different areas in the West Bank, north into the Galilee and along the Mediterranean coastline.

Comments by two November 2022 study tour participants

„It was a life changing tour that brought alive the history of Israeli settler colonialism and its impact on every part of daily Palestinian life, caging them in and preventing them from enjoying so many of the freedoms that we take for granted. It really motivated me to write, give talks and be more involved in activism in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle.“

(Jan O’Malley – Nov 2022)

“I strongly recommend this tour. I have visited Palestine many times over the years but my visits have tended to concentrate on one issue each time. The ICAHD tour gave me a coherent picture of the whole. Sadly the situation gets worse for the Palestinians each time I visit but the tour is a good spur for action.”

(Clare Short, former MP and Secretary of State for International Development – Nov 2022)
