Week 37: Bethlehem Online Gathering

You can find the 2021 gathering here.

On September 13 we examined the state of Bethlehem, which is under assault by settlements and walls on all sides. We were joined by Usama Zoughbi of Wi’am.

Wi’am: The Palestinian Conflict Transformation Center is a grassroots civil society organization based in Bethlehem. In Arabic, “wi’am” means “cordial relationships,” and developing relationships is the essence of our mission. Wi’am helps resolve disputes within the Palestinian community at the grassroots level by implementing the traditional Arab form of mediation, known as Sulha, along with Western models of conflict transformation. They have programs that empower children, youth, women and men, addressing the psychological and physiological consequences of long-term conflict.
