Dilemmas and Possible Cooperation in the Haifa Region

Dilemmas and Possible Cooperation in the Haifa Region, Haifa, December 24, 2009
This workshop brought together faculty members from six community-engaged courses from the Haifa area, and the representatives of civil society organizations with whom they work in the framework of their courses. The objective of the workshop was to allow faculty and the NGO representatives to discuss common dilemmas, learn about the projects of other community-engaged courses taking place in the area, and consider and possibly formulate joint projects.
It resulted in the development of shared programs focusing on the work of three courses operating in the same mixed Arab and Jewish underprivileged neighborhood in Haifa:
  • Methods for Community Organizing: The Haifa Partnership for Combating Poverty, Dr. Roni Strier
    School of Social Work, University of Haifa
  • Planning with the Community: Concepts, Tools and Strategies for Action, Prof. Rachel Kallus and Dr. Emily Silverman
    Technion – Israel Institute of Technology 
  • Legal Feminism and Social Change, Adv. Dana Myrtenbaum, Noor Falach and Dr. Sagit Mor
    Faculty of Law, the Haifa Legal Feminism Clinic, University of Haifa
