Can Serbs Learn From Israelis and Palestinians?
Despite very different conflicts, Serbian, Israeli and Palestinian rights activists say they face common problems: state denial of past atrocities and the task of helping wartime refugees return home.
“You need to get out from your own context, learn about other conflicts so you can look at your situation from a different perspective,” explained professor Orli Fridman, the Israeli director of the Belgrade-based Centre for Comparative Conflict Studies, during her latest study seminar to Tel Aviv last month.
Fridman has been organising such study seminars over the past years, bringing human rights activists from Israel and the Palestinian territories to Serbia to explore what people who have been through two very different conflicts can share and learn from each other.
