The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the longest-running and most contentious in the world. The conflict can be seen at one level to be essentially over the competing claims of two different nations to one area of land. However the issues are deeply complex and contested, and in 2013, despite many years of a peace process a final solution to the conflict remains a distant hope.
Both Israeli and Palestinian civil society groups have reacted to the conflict by forming a large number of peacebuilding organisations, including some notable collaborations. On this site, you will be able to find information on their work.
