Combatants for Peace is a group of Palestinians and Israelis who have taken an active part in the cycle of violence in their region: Israeli soldiers serving in the IDF and Palestinians as combatants fighting to free their country, Palestine, from Israeli occupation. Working at the local level in both communities, Combatants for Peace believes that the conflict cannot be resolved, through military means, by either of the parties.
Please join NIMEP and the Institute of Global Leadership in their first series of speakers led by Combatants for Peace.
The Institute, for the third year, is co-sponsoring this benefit concert organized by Music for Life International and featuring Scheherazade-inspired works by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Maurice Ravel led by the Indian conductor George Mathew. This year's concert will benefit the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women. Ms. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, the Fund's Executive Director and the Under-Secretary-General for Women at the United Nations, will deliver the opening remarks.
