Pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli groups based in France regularly organize trips to the Middle East. These trips can take different forms which reflect the diversity among pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian groups. For instance, they can be organized for the activists themselves in the framework of so-called “solidarity” trips or for influential VIPs (MPs and journalists in particular) in the framework of so-called “information” trips. This publication aims at building a typology of the different kinds of trips, taking into account the objectives of the organizers and the way the trips are organized.
