How to Carry On: Civil Society Peacebuilding Amidst Trauma

Even prior to October 7th, unresolved trauma from violence, displacement, and loss had profoundly impacted both Palestinian and Israeli societies, leaving lasting effects on individual’s conception of “the Other”. Now, eight months into the deadliest war in the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza, rape and sexualized violence used as a weapon of war, and levels of dehumanization and polarization not seen before, the need for trauma-sensitive approaches in peacebuilding is more evident than ever. Join us for an insightful panel discussion on the role of Israeli-Palestinian civil society in addressing these levels of trauma, and in disrupting cycles of violence and dehumanization, building on a future of equality, security and peace for both Palestinians and Israelis.
