Israel / Palestine


Within swisspeace's regional program focusing on the Middle East, the Foundation has developed expertise on Palestine through consultancy mandates, research and trainings. For example, swisspeace has worked with Palestinian partner organizations to promote Palestinian reconciliation in Gaza and the West Bank.

The Center for Peacebuilding (KOFF) has organized regular roundtables on Israel/Palestine, bringing together representatives from governmental and non-governmental organizations, as well as academia, to share experiences and lessons learned from the field.
