The Jerusalem Center for Women (JCW) believes that empowering women, and advocating for respect for human rights and democratic principles is crucial to creating a foundation for a just and lasting peace.
JCW strives to train and empower young women activists, students, and professionals to prepare them to communicate and actively participate in all aspects of society. The Advocacy and Human Rights Program works to make international law relevant to the women of East Jerusalem and the West Bank, working with them to challenge and change policies that undermine human rights and instead work towards rights based alternatives. Through advanced training on conflict management and negotiation, the women participating in this project learn new and innovative approaches to peacemaking, such as non-violent communication skills, change management, and inclusive dialogue techniques.
