Dialogue among Palestinian Youth in the West Bank and Gaza City

Jun 09, 2010

In Palestine, UNDEF funds a project to build leadership capacity among youth and establish forums for them to participate in democratic processes and promote democratic principles in their communities.

With UNDEF support, the Ramallah Center for Human Rights Studies, RCHRS, has developed a programme to improve democratic dialogue among youth in both the West Bank and Gaza City. Implemented in several stages, the programme started by training participants in tolerance and constructive dialogue.In the most recent stage, participants attended collective training workshops in Ramallah and Gaza City to put these skills into practice. The meetings included leaders, facilitators and youth reperesenting a variety of perspectives, making the workshops a valuable opportunity to network and gain understanding of various cultural, traditional, and religious backgrounds.
