The Palestinian Peace Coalition and H.L. Education for Peace, jointly known as the Geneva Initiative, launched the Two State Solution Coalition in April 2018, with generous support from the European Commission within the framework of the EU Peacebuilding Initiative. The coalition brings together more than twenty influential Palestinian and Israeli civil society organizations that support and promote the two-state solution.
The coalition advances conditions for a negotiated settlement of the conflict by consolidating the efforts of peace-oriented civil-society organizations (CSOs) towards maintaining the viability of the two-state solution. To this effect, we aim to strengthen the voice, capacity, advocacy and policy-shaping efforts of Israeli and Palestinian peace-oriented CSOs at a cross-border level. Coalition goals include capacity building, information sharing, and coordinating efforts to enhance the role of Palestinian and Israeli CSOs in advocating for peaceful resolution of the conflict, both at local and international levels.
The coalition is based on a simple principle: We are stronger together.
ECF is an Israeli policy planning think-tank dedicated to achieving the two-state solution; to promote peace, security and prosperity for Israel and its Arab neighbors and to promote Middle East regional stability. ECF operates on three levels of policy planning: 1) working for a comprehensive Israeli-Arab peace 2) preventing escalation of violence and creating conditions for sustainable stability 3) working in support of Palestinian state-building.
