As an internationally active network organisation, we implement our projects and programmes in close cooperation with a variety of different local organisations – from grassroots organisations to nationally active non-governmental organisations. We are united by the feminist vision of a peaceful world in which everyone feels safe.

With our country programmes, we work on several topics relevant to peace policy topics in conflict-affected regions – flexibly and specific to the context. We expanded the country programmes in 2021 with the aim of a more long-term collaboration with our partners on larger projects that address the issue of security from a feminist perspective.
* The projects were completed in 2023. Currently, we are not active in Palestine. *
Our work in Palestine counters the increasing social, political and geographical fragmentation of Palestinian society. It supports Palestinian visions for a feminist future marked by justice. With our project partners, we work to bring together and empower women and queer people affected by violence and gender injustice across fragmented and militarised borders, in order to become more aware of and claim their rights.
We condemn the eviction of 28 Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah, Jerusalem by the Israeli occupation forces. We call for international support to end the forced evictions and support the sovereignty of the Palestinian people.
During the current health crisis, in addition to an increase in domestic violence, an increase in gender-based violence in digital spaces has been observed. So, too, in Palestine. Together with the NGO TAM - Women & Media Development, we are now taking action against this phenomenon. Because the internet is one of the spaces in which the safe participation of women must be guaranteed.
