Our Organization

Five Guiding Principles of Our Work:

Putting Our Values into Action

 We develop programs and partnerships that aim to:


1. A waken communities and individuals out of the narrowness of nationalism and ethnocentrism to a broad recognition of our common humanity, interdependence and shared longing for peace.

2. Build learning communities that investigate the causes, consequences and prevention of mass violence and generate interventions that advance justice and peace through nonviolent means.

3. Facilitate the development of social responsibility and creative peacemaking, grounded in compassion and strengthened by knowledge, skills, confidence and self-awareness.

4. Encourage the values and practices that support diversity and robust pluralism within and beyond our own societies.    

5. Create the conditions to transform enmity, faster social healing, and explore the opportunities for reconciliation and forgiveness within divided, oppressed and/or war-torn regions.



أجندتنا فلسطينية خالصة، عربية العمق، وهي امتداد لثوابتنا الوطنية الشرعية، نهدف إلى التخلص من الاحتلال بالمقاومة المدنية وبالأساليب الإنسانية المشروعة، والعيش بحرية وكرامة ورخاء، وبناء دولتنا المستقلة وعاصمتها القدس الشريف، ديمقراطية آمنة حـرّة.. عملنا وبرامجنا هي داخل المجتمع الفلسطيني وخارجه، وعلى ثرى الوطـن ومن أجل حماية مقدراته وسلامة أبنائه جميعا.

Internships are available for students and non-students, and can be arranged for-credit with universities and colleges.  As ALWATAN Center’s staff is relatively small, interns play an integral role in ALWATAN’s projects and functioning as a cohesive organization.  Interns work closely with an ALWATAN staff member.  However, interns are expected to exhibit independence, creativity and self-sufficiency as well as to contribute their expertise based on their unique background. Interns must be able to dedicate 15-20 hours per week on average. Each intern will have his/her time split between research, programmatic support, organizational outreach and administrative tasks.

Our Values

We at ALWATAN Center value from all Palestinian people their positive contribution to society and culture, irrespective of political faction, religion or social status.

-       We value the energy, creativity and depth of Palestinian history.

 -      We recognize and honor the strength and resilience of Palestinians.


-      We recognize also that the Palestinian people are living with the repercussions of more than 62 years of occupation and displacement from their homeland.


-      We value all human beings who commit themselves to non-violent action in the service of justice, peace, and the rule of good laws.


-   We honor those who have done so before us, who do so now, and all those who will engage in such effort in the future.
