Funds for: Supporting the conditions for a sustainable resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
Main beneficiaries: NGOs

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* Support and promote the conditions for a sustainable resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through civil society and citizens positive engagement
* Supporting innovative and results-oriented actions aimed at breaking through the current political impasse and/or reversing current negative trends, promoting tolerance, in order to contribute to ultimately reaching a two-state solution;
* Supporting innovative and results-oriented actions that—through attitudinal change and the inclusion of key constituencies—promote the conditions necessary for a negotiated settlement of the conflict, which will ultimately lead to a two-state solution, and/or reverse negative trends by influencing the political sphere;
* Supporting cooperation between Israelis and Palestinians, including in particular at the grass-roots level, in creating sectors of influence on policy arrangements in key areas of mutual interest, such as higher education, scientific and technological advancement, environment, agriculture, health, climate change, trade and business (including tourism) among others, with the aim of building mutual confidence and helping maintain the conditions for the viability of the two-state solution

Priorities
* Empowering women and enhancing their role and meaningful participation in conflict prevention and conflict resolution as agents of positive change at all societal levels. This should be reflected in the entire project cycle;
* Engaging youth in conflict resolution and involving them in building a culture of peace in both societies;
* Expanding the peace camp and promoting tolerance by including mainstreamed and less engaged audiences in a substantial manner;
* Involving marginalised and/or sceptical groups that are not necessarily committed to conflict resolution or to the values and policies that the EUPI supports;
* Fostering local leadership and grass-roots initiatives able of producing multilevel and long-term relation-building impacts at the cross-border level

Among financed actions
* Actions aiming at building mutual understanding, confidence and trust by deconstructing traditional narratives about “the other”, counteracting incitement and misinformation and rejecting violence in public spaces (including in media and social media), promoting a culture of peace in both Israeli and Palestinian societies;
* Cooperative endeavours between Israelis and Palestinians, including in the fields of trade, agriculture, health, environment, education, culture, information and sport;
* Actions engaging mainstream political stakeholders and groups, including religious leaders, in both Israel and Palestine towards adopting and/or supporting agendas for peace and justice;
* Actions engaging stakeholders and constituencies, including religious groups and leaders, on both sides that are traditionally less exposed or less committed to the MEPP, in undertaking practical trust-building steps towards a two-state solution;
* Advocacy and awareness-raising for policy shaping initiatives including at the grass-roots level;
* Actions aiming at collecting, researching, documenting and disseminating information in service of the resolution of the conflict, including the consequences of its continuation, and proposing responses;
* Actions developing the capacities and public legitimacy of organisations working to promote the conditions for a negotiated settlement of the conflict;
* Actions that positively influence the policy environment governing cross-border collaboration;
* Actions leveraging the mutual interests of Israelis and Palestinians, to create long-lasting cross-border cooperation that is both resilient to renewed waves of violence and self-sustaining, with the aim of building mutual confidence
