Advocacy Officer - Israeli Committee Against House Demolition
The aim of project is to enhance ICAHD's (Israeli Committee Against House Demolition) ongoing programme of a rights-based advocacy approach for a just peace between Israelis and Palestinians by developing an "action advocacy" programme. Action advocacy enables a human rights organisation like ICAHD, which works with activists close to "the ground," to effectively co-ordinate the many levels of activities in response to immediate or short-term developments.
This project proposes hiring an Action Advocacy Officer (Angela Godfrey) and providing resources to carry out her responsibilities. The proposed programme envisions the strengthening and expansion of activist, advocacy and lobbying networks, of an efficient flow of information and of greater co-operation among activist groups.
There are three target groups: (1) Palestinian and Israeli peace and human rights organisations, (2) their international partners and (3) decision-makers and shapers of public opinion who understand the need for a win-win approach to the Middle East conflict.
