Intercommunal Peace actions
Peace building is a process comprised of various functions and roles. It often requires a wide range of steps so that the Palestinian, Syrian and Lebanese communities can share responsibility in addressing their disputes in a non-violent and cooperative manner. It aims at enhancing mutual understanding and promoting social cohesion by addressing the root causes of conflict in Lebanon as well as the impact of the Syrian crisis on social stability in Lebanon. The main stakeholders of this intervention are different groups including local community leaders, local actors, youth, teachers, parents and civil society activists.
