Grassroots Activists for Just Peace and Gender Equality

15.07.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

This successful practice targets activists and young university students in 30 locations in the West Bank and Gaza. The objective was to empower marginalized, conflict affected women in the occupied territory in order to play an active role in contributing to greater peace and security through media campaigns and community initiatives that are built on the result of a Participatory Action Research (PAR). Through meetings, consultations and trainings, many data on women, peace and security needs and priorities of affected communities by war were collected. This initiative allowed 50 university students to be more actively engaged with the promotion of the central role of women in order to promote greater peace and security through new technologies, among others. The practice also improved the competences of 300 peace activists with regards to promote innovative solutions to conflict.Since the survey was conducted, many information activities and campaigns have been launched on social media. They were designated for various community members, including local authorities and leaders, to raise awareness on women’s problems and their active role in strengthening peace and security.

This practice has been identified within the framework of the CSO WINS project "Capacity-building in the Southern Mediterranean to Open Policy Dialogue and MonitoringforWomen IN Society"with the support of the European Union’s Neighborhood Civil Society Facility.
