"I am a Palestinian activist from the nonviolent resistance movement that is struggling to end the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, through nonviolent peaceful actions.

I met staff during their research on nonviolent resistance in Palestine. I was in touch with the Centre prior to submitting my application; staff provided a great support and insight into the course.
The residential Summer School in conflict resolution skills enabled me to gain further knowledge and understanding of the theory of and practice of nonviolent and conflict transformation. The experience helped me to conceptualise and reflect on the internal struggle in Palestine, providing a theoretical framework to enable me to understand the power struggle and how I can contribute towards the nonviolent resistance movement."
