Arrival of the Chinese Group
Sixteen students from the IDC came to the Maxwell School on September 24th for a three week program in which they studied POLICY, POLITICS AND CONFLICT. The course took place on the Syracuse University campus and included site visits to Washington, DC.
In 1996, representatives of The Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) of Herzliya, Israel and the Maxwell School of Syracuse University began discussions to identify areas where the two institutions could collaborate. Leaders from IDC visited Syracuse University and the Maxwell School in the Fall of 1996, and in 1997 Syracuse sent a delegation of faculty and administrators to visit the IDC. In Fall 1998, leaders of the IDC returned to Syracuse for additional talks. This Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is one of the results of the meetings and underscores the intention of both institutions to establish a formal relationship that will benefit students and faculty throughout an extended period of time.
