FFIPP is a educational network for human rights in Israel and Palestine. We are the London chapter of this worldwide, non-profit student-run organisation.
 
We are all guided by two main objectives:

• To build an effective faculty and student network that educates the academic community about the situation in Israel/Palestine and the region and advocates policies conducive to reaching a just peace

• To cooperate with those who work for a just peace and assist conscientious Palestinian and Israeli faculty and students.
During the summer program, students have the opportunity to participate in an orientation week, which consists of meeting various actors and attending conferences in Israel and the West Bank, and subsequently to intern for four weeks at one of our partner organisations. These internships are above all an opportunity to observe, to have a better understanding of the situation on the ground and to discover local structures acting towards the promotion of human rights.
