On November 17th, our “Women as Drivers of Change” project entered its next stage of action, with the first of several intensive seminars about reconciliation taking place in Tel Aviv. The seminar offered leading women in a variety of fields (directors of civil society organizations, political activists, cultural figures, and more) an in-depth understanding of our Dealing with the Past (DWP) approach, a joint Palestinian-Israeli initiative that outlines a plan for transitional justice and a policy of reconciliation between the two peoples.
For too long, women haven’t had a voice at the highest decision-making levels when it comes to negotiations and conflict resolution. The goal of the seminars: give influential female voices the tools and knowledge to become leading actors for peace.
This project is part of a broader strategy that seeks to make a future peace agreement sustainable by introducing a parallel process of reconciliation into public discourse.
