Olive Tree Initiative

Olive Tree Initiative

The Olive Tree Initiative (OTI) is an innovative and exciting educational programme at the University of Glasgow in partnership with the University of California, Irvine.

As an experiential learning programme, we are at the cutting edge of conflict analysis education. Every year, selected junior honours students undertake one semester of academic preparation and a three week field trip to the Middle East. Through this programme, students are given a unique opportunity to gain an in-depth and holistic understanding of the Arab-Israeli Conflict.
