Human rights and an end to the occupation in Palestine

WILPF and partners joined together in calling for an end to the occupation in Palestine and for accountability for violations. Last month, we issued a statement condemning attempted forced displacement in occupied East Jerusalem and violence against civilians, including in Gaza.

WILPF International and MENA Sections Stand in Solidarity with Palestine

In response to the recent violence, WILPF held meetings and briefings with decisionmakers in both New York and Geneva, and joined a call for the Human Rights Council to adopt a resolution on the human rights situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

WILPF and Palestine section members and partners have published a number of resources in recent years on the gendered impacts of the occupation. You can find some of them below.
