The UNRWA Peer Mediation Programme

17 May 2022

Today, UNRWA joins the international community in celebrating International Day of Living Together in Peace. Living together in peace means accepting our differences, respecting human rights, using dialogue to resolve conflicts, and embracing our diversity. This is what the UNRWA programme on human rights, conflict resolution and tolerance (HRCRT) is all about. The UNRWA HRCRT Programme began in 1999 with the aim to promote non-violence, healthy communication skills, peaceful conflict- resolution, human rights, tolerance and good citizenship. The Peer Mediation Programme is one of the HRCRT programme most recent projects on peaceful conflict resolution, established with the generous support of the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) of the United States Government. In this video, we will learn more about the Peer Mediation Programme from the perspectives of education staff and students.
