MICAD is promoted by Bethlehem University thanks to the support of several partners, starting from the Italian Conference of the Catholic Church CEI, the Italian Ngo VIS (Volontariato Internazionale per lo Sviluppo) and a network of six institutions and organizations led by the University of Pavia, Italy. This network, later described in
detail, has been established through the TEMPUS program of the European Union.

MICAD is also supported by a wide network of partners operating in Palestine, including international organizations, agencies of the United Nations, international NGOs and Palestinian NGOs. Partners participate in the successful making of the program by contributing to teaching specific modules; organizing workshops and seminars; providing internship proposals; supporting applications from young officers.

The academic management of the program is the responsibility of the MICAD Scientific Committee, which includes six members: three from Bethlehem University, and three from the University of Pavia and VIS. Supported by local MICAD staff, the Committee deals with admission procedures, academic contents, lecturers’ appointment, students’
policy, thesis ap proval and internships.

The Scientific Committee comprises the following members:

  • Br. Neil Kieffe - Acting Vice President for Academic Affairs at Bethlehem University

  • Dr. Usama Shahwan - Associate Professor of Management at Bethlehem University
