Building the capacity of young Palestinian leaders from Bethlehem

In early March, the Palestinian Peace Coalition-Geneva Initiative held a two-day capacity-building seminar for young Palestinian leaders. It included lectures, open discussions and a field visit to certain relevant locations in Bethlehem, and stressed the role of youth in the social, democratic and political life in Palestine.

The seminar provided the participants with detailed information on the current political situation, focusing primarily on the peace process and the potential of younger Palestinians to promote a negotiated peace agreement.
