Rotem Dan Mor is a Conscientious Objector to compulsory army service in Israel. He served for a year and a half in the Israeli Army before refusing to continue to serve and spending time in prison for his choice. Since his release he has:

  • Toured Australia, New Zealand and the US speaking publicly on the Peace and Conscientious Objector movements in Israel-Palestine
  • Organised and facilitated programs for young people in Israel contemplating refusal to compulsory army service, with New Profile (feminist organization working to create a civil, demilitarized society in Israel) and American Friends Service Committee (Quakers)
  • Actively resisted the building of the Separation Wall

Halim Rane has been lecturing in Islamic Studies for the past five years. He has recently returned from a visit to Palestine and Israel. He was there to conduct field research for his PhD, which is in the field of conflict resolution, specifically focussing on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
