The Interdisciplinary Center (IDC)

The Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya is Israel's first private Institution for Higher Education. Founded by renowned Israeli Professor, Uriel Reichman, in 1994, IDC Herzliya is a non-profit organization modeled after Ivy League schools in the U.S.

IDC Herzliya's success has brought both international recognition and drawn some of the finest lecturers and researchers from around the world to our doorstep. Our faculty is dedicated to IDC Herzliya's primary goal: giving our students the tools they need to become leaders in all the Social Sciences fields both in Israel and abroad.


Media in Conflicts Seminar (MICS) is a seminar for young journalists (ages 20-35) focusing on media coverage of conflicts zones. It aims to provide participants with a better understanding and deeper knowledge on the essential role played by the media in the world in general, and the Middle East in particular. It was created in response to the often biased and misinformed media coverage on the Israeli-Palestinian and Israeli-Arab conflict; and with the realization that unbalanced reporting can fuel misconceptions regarding the region's complexities among decision-makers and global public opinion.

During the last 7 years MICS has brought together over200 reporters from more than 40 countries to learn about the intricacies of conflicts reporting, by using the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a case study.

MICS is a donation-based non-profit seminar, operated by volunteering B.A students from the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy & Strategy at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel. This year, the seminar will be held for the 7th year, between August 30th and September 3rd. After witnessing the great effects of the seminar during "Protective Edge" operation, we have confidence in the seminar's effectiveness and its necessity.

So join our cause, donate and help us CHANGE THE WORLD.
