Israeli Jewish and Arab intergroup relations experts within Israel have developed innovative coexistence programs. These programs consist of educational efforts designed to improve relations between Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs. This issue presents theory, methods, and data from these coexistence programs. The programs are diverse, taking place in schools, recreational settings, communities, and through the mass media. They also vary a great deal in their goals and techniques. The opening articles address conceptual and theoretical issues involved in establishing conditions for positive coexistence in Israel. The second set of articles examine specific coexistence programs, presenting the background and the goals of these programs, the techniques employed, and assessments, when they are available. A third set of articles critically evaluates coexistence programs.
