A young group of Israeli and Palestinian female students will attempt to find a solution to one of the most controversial and difficult topics in the world next Sunday, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The congress will be held in the Arab-Hebrew Theater in Tel Aviv, and will be led by Dr. Sapir Handelman – an Israeli who received the Peter Becker Award in Peace and Conflict Research. The negotiations will be open to the public and international observers will watch the proceedings.

Handelman has successfully conducted around 40 Israeli-Palestinian peace conferences in the past all over the world, from the US to Canada to the West Bank. These congresses have been named the "Minds of Peace Experiment."

Around 60 Israeli and Palestinian female students will be in attendance at the conference. The main focus of the meeting is to negotiate trust-building measures, suspension of the violent struggle, and solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"The Congress of the Female Students is an important step towards the establishment of a major Israeli-Palestinian Public Negotiating Congress – a powerful peacemaking institution that will operate over a period of time," according to a statement released by the organizers of the event. "This peacemaking institution is designed to involve the people in the peacemaking efforts and motivate the leaderships, on the opposing sides, to conclude agreements."
