Pushing forward: the issue of violence and PVE in Palestine 

Multi stake-holder session in the frameworkof the project “BADIL: Preventing Violent Extremism in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. An approach based in Peacebuilding and Human Rights”, co-organized by Novact, Al-Marsad -Social and Economic Policies Monitor, Muwatin Institute for Democracy and Human RIghts (Birzeit University) and the Palestinian Circus School,

The Palestinian society has suffered from violence systematically as the result of several factors, all stemming from an imbalance of power which come together to form what we call a “violent environment”.

Al-Marsad and Muwatin Institute in depth researches identify violence from its roots and help understand not only the cause of violence in society, but also the role violence plays and the ends to which violence is used as a means.
