Women Peace and Security (WPS)
 
Women Peace and Security
MIFTAH plays a leading role in the realization and advancement of Women Peace and Security Agenda in Palestine in relation to UNSCR 1325 since 2007. MIFTAH strategically works through WPS to amplify Palestinian women voices at the national and international fora, and to urge UN bodies and member states in addition to national actors, to take actions against the escalation of Israeli occupation violence and human rights violations against Palestinian women and girls.

The main pathways of MIFTAHís WPS program are:

  1. Enhance women representation and participation in reconciliation efforts to promote civic peace and ensure the integration of womenís agenda, including values of democracy and equality, in negotiations and national dialogues.

  2. Carry out evidence-based advocacy calling for accountability and ending impunity of perpetrators of human rights violations in reference to Article 11 of UNSCR 1325.

  3. Provide evidence-based research and fact sheets reflecting Palestinian women status under occupation. MIFTAH provides evidence on the gendered impact of the Israeli occupation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip through documentation of human rights violations and cases of violence committed against Palestinian women and girls.

  4. Contribute in coordinating WPS aid and planning through setting up for proper coordination mechanisms for aid effectiveness among national and international actors to advance WPS in Palestine.

  5. Foster dialogue and networking at the national and international levels with the view of widening solidarity with the Palestinian cause.
