Muslim Jewish Conference, Sarajevo 2013

MJC 2013 Sarajevo

The `Muslim Jewish Conference' (MJC) is a dialogue and leadership  project that targets Muslim and Jewish leaders of tomorrow from the fields of economics, politics and academia. Students and young professionals from all over the world gather once a year at the `MJC', working towards achieving a feat that many describe as impossible: stepping beyond the boundaries of non - communication, ignorance and stereotyping to build a new global movement of young Muslim and Jewish leaders who are committed to accomplishing mutual respect.

The MJC 2013 will take place in Sarajevo, Bosnia, from June 30 through
July 5. Our host city will be Sarajevo.


There will be 6 committees to choose from, aiming at both an academic examination of Muslim-Jewish relations, as well as formulating and laying the grounds for practical projects to enhance Muslim-Jewish cooperation and tackle common problems. Furthermore, there will be guest speakers and social events, along with sessions open to all participants.

The application process requires each participant to fill out this online form. We have listed the committees below, but please note we will send committee descriptions - and will update this form - in the near future.

Please note that the form requires each applicant to upload a recent photograph, an updated version of their CV, an optional letter of recommendation from a professor/employer/NGO/NPO and a scanned copy of a valid passport.

Acceptances will take place on a rolling basis: the final date for submission is April 30, 2013. One hundred participants will be selected from amongst the applicants with equal proportions of Muslims and Jews including applicants of different backgrounds and affiliations.

As an official policy, the MJC does not require payment of any participation fee and will provide accommodation for the duration of the conference, from Sunday, June 30, to Saturday July 6. However, the MJC does not provide any financial support for travel to/from the conference, visa applications or single room requests. Room allocation is gender based: men and women will not be able to share rooms with each other.

Kosher and Halal food will be available twice a day. For any other expenses the participants have to plan accordingly.

Best of luck with your application and we hope to see you in Sarajevo!
