Ta’awon for Conflict Resolution is an independent, national, Palestinian, non-profit organization. It was established in 2002 to raise awareness about effective and peaceful methods to deal with conflict. It aims to promote understanding and peace via the integration of concepts of mediation, negotiation, communication and civic peace education with CSOs, educational institutions, and the community. Ta’awon works through a number of interventions in the field to meet its objectives relying on two approaches: the first being directly involved in alternative conflict resolution methodologies; the second being community and organizational development in the fields of good governance, democratization, accountability and participation, transparency, and anti-corruption.
Organization’s strategic goals:
• Consolidate peaceful conflict resolution through the use of alternative conflict resolution methods such as negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and dialogue.
• Contribute to decreasing the number and scale of social conflicts through promoting civic values in thought and behavior.
• Contribute to the development of justice and security programs through institutionalizing conflict resolution programs in the policies and regulations of governmental, non-governmental, and private entities.
