|Title:||Mar Elias, Israeli-Arab Christians, and the Sign of the White Dove||Contributor(s):||Denman, Brian (author) ; Loller, M (author); Spence, Rebecca (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2199||Abstract:||The intent of this paper is to relate the formation of Mar Elias as a tertiary institution and to identify the spheres of influence and relevant factors that may lead to its success or demise. It considers the relevance of its founding president, Abuna Elias Chacour, whose installation as Archbishop of the Galilee in early 2006 has brought a sense of cautious optimism. It identifies some arguments for and against Mar Elias' possible identity as a Christian oriented and peace-building institution and the goal of increasing educational standards and opportunities for the community-at-large. It also maps the current climate of tertiary education in Israel with emphasis placed on those institutions serving the Israeli-Arab population and considers possible scenarios for Mar Elias' future.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Global Governance, Educational Change and Cultural Ecology, Canberra, Australia, 30 November - 3 December 2006||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 34th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Comparative and International education Society (ANZCIES), p. 82-99||Publisher:||Centre for Research on International Education and Sustainability, School of Education, University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||130302 Comparative and Cross-Cultural Education||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.anzcies.org/about.php
