Intractable is a biweekly storytelling project that combines history, news, personal narratives, expert interviews and audio artifacts to tell one of the most complex narratives of our time: the story of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Jumping between historical and present-day stories, Intractable explains the complex realities of today, tackles difficult topics with empathy and tact, and in the process, weaves a tale that speaks to the human capacity for triumph, betrayal, cooperation, transformation, pride, self-preservation, and resilience. Intractable is made possible thanks to the generous support the Charles P. Howland Fellowship and the Cohen Public Service Fellowship from Yale University. The project is produced with the help of the Daniel Pearl International Journalism Institute (DPIJI), a nonprofit dedicated to improving reportage on the Middle East, and the Sammy Ofer School of Communications at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya.
