You said contrasts, you said Israel. A land where the ancient coexists with the ultramodern, where ultraorthodoxy is just around the corner from the start-up nation, where sweet honey is served after a hot spicy meal.
A mosaic of communities, Israel always manages to surprise even those who think they have seen it all. In our programs, we explore and experience real intercultural communication moments where sharpening our cultural intelligence is a must. We are here to support you on that journey.
Palestine is what we can call a state in the making. Where ancient traditions and institutions are being readapted or recreated to reach full statehood. It is a fascinating place that tries to conjugate supposed contradictions, debating between the past and the future. Now is the best time to explore how complex geopolitical status impacts the culture in many different areas, assisted by our programs and people. Our Palestine programs cover only the regions of Bethlehem and Ramallah.
Due to its strategic position, the island of Cyprus has for centuries been an important factor in trade. At the crossroads of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, it offers a mix of influences that generate a peculiar and unique identity. From its tranquil Mediterranean resorts to the hustle and bustle of a major financial center, from its coastlines to its less traveled mountains, off the beaten track, it has much to offer. Its capital, where church bells alternate with the calls of muezzins to mosques, is a fascinating mosaic, to which we want to return again and again.
