Building Sumud Project (Palestinian Territories)
The Building Sumud Project studies interactions between the social and environmental impacts of the Occupation and acts of resilience (Sumud) through the logic of conflict transformation. It aims to establish a presence in the Territories and create forums for discussion for various non-violent and conflict-transforming initiatives concerning the old city of Hebron and the surrounding areas. It facilitates learning in action, to express oneself, and to publicize initiatives. The creation of a local team of researchers and observers is an essential result of this project. Based on our methodology, the project strives to develop capabilities that can be transferable to other cities in the Palestinian Territories or elsewhere.
