|Summer Inters at the Jerusalem Institute of Justice
This summer I have the opportunity to travel to Jerusalem, Israel, and work with the Jerusalem Institute of Justice (JIJ).
JIJ is is dedicated to cultivating and defending the rule of law, human rights, freedom of conscience, and democracy for all people in Israel and its adjacent territories. JIJ works to advocate for Israel in the conflict with Palestine.
When I first arrived, JIJ was getting ready for a women’s rights committee meeting and asked me to put together a short memo on online prostitution, which was presented at the meeting. The research was then turned into a short article that is in the process of being edited to submit to Times of Israel for publication.
After that short project was completed I started my bigger research project. I will be writing an informational memo on Palestine. Most people don’t know that there are two political parties in Palestine that hate each other more than they hate Israel. The chances of Palestine being one state are very slim. So I am putting together a basic memo/article to inform people about the conflict within Palestine.
I look forward to the rest of the summer and learning more about Middle Eastern politics.This post was written by a Center for Global Justice student intern. The views expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect those of Regent University, Regent Law School, or the Center for Global Justice.
