Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs has established a joint program with Israel’s IDC Herzliya.

The joint program with the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy at IDC Herzliya will begin in fall 2014.

Under the program, juniors from the Wilson school will enroll in the Middle East specialization offered by the Lauder School. At the end of the semester the students will write a policy paper as part of the Princeton Task Force Program.

The IDC is the Wilson School’s only partner in the Middle East. Princeton also has similar partnerships with six universities worldwide, including the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, and Sciences Po in Paris.

Founded in 1994, IDC is the first private, non-profit institute of higher education in Israel. The student body is international with 25 percent coming from overseas. Of the international students, 34 percent come from the U.S. and 28 percent come from Europe.

Princeton has study abroad programs at several universities in Israel: Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Rothberg International School; Tel Aviv University, Lowy School for Overseas Students; and the University of Haifa.
