Demo Erasmus+ Project

About Demo Project:

Erasmus+ project DEMO – Developing Modernized Curricula on Immigrants’ Lives in Israel, includes about thirty academics from Israeli higher education institutions and fifteen from European Universities and we have designed twelve academic courses and additional short modules that focus on the lives of migrants and forced migrants. The courses apply innovative and creative teaching methodologies, have been piloted and are now being taught in Israeli and other European institutions.

The aim of the project is to improve the skills of professionals in applied social sciences (teachers, counselors, social workers, psychologists etc.) so that they can better meet the needs of migrants. To achieve this, we are developing, implementing and disseminating courses on the lives of migrants. By applying advanced teaching methodologies, we encourage a personal and meaningful learning process that enables the students to connect to their own and their families' migration histories. By means of community involved and art-based methodologies, students in DEMO courses document narratives of migrants and study them.

We invite you to promote cooperation with our project and integrate DEMO's teaching materials in your work. For more reading and viewing the contents, please visit:

Hope Kindergarten


This research is based on a case study of Bedouin parents from unrecognized villages in the Naqab desert who experience dispossession, severe structural oppression and cultural transition in the midst of an ongoing political conflict. The study provides an opportunity to witness processes of change. A group of mothers decided to take action, and initiated a community-managed kindergarten called ‘Hope’, that allows their children to play in a safe place. Supported by their husbands, the mothers invited Arab-Israeli parliament members, journalists and NGO directors to visit the kindergarten in order to raise attention to their children’s needs. These initiatives have been proves successful, as authorities have decided to provide transportation for the children (ages 4-5) from unrecognized villages to a governmental kindergarten in a nearby recognized village. Parents continue to support the ‘Hope’ initiative to keep their children out of danger.
