About

At Illi Initiatives, we believe a peaceful and prosperous future of the MENA region is contingent upon our ability to foster meaningful and sustainable relationships across ethnic, religious, and national boundaries. It also requires having innovative leadership at all levels of society and in all realms of life. Encounters - at eye level - are one essential ingredient in building meaningful relationships.

 

Illi Initiatives works with a diverse international team of academics and practitioners who have experience and expertise in conflict analysis and resolution, and extensive knowledge of international affairs, and particularly the MENA region. We also work in close partnership with MENA-based organizations and community leaders.

Programs

ILLI offers a variety of programs, including immersion travel, workshops, language lessons, and internship opportunities.

 

Resources

To enrich your experience, ILLI offers additional resources - articles and books worth reading, and websites worth visiting.

Get Involved

Join a trip, order workshop, learn a language, or design your own internship.  Or, better yet - do a combination of some or all of the above!
