Peace Watch Switzerland / Switzerland
The Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) of Peace Watch Switzerland supports local and international endeavours to end the Israeli occupation and aims to contribute to a just and peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, based on humanitarian law and the relevant UN resolutions. EAPPI is thus responding to the call of the local churches and of Palestinian and Israeli human rights organisations for an international presence. The programme is a sign of the international Christian community that includes the local churches. In the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, EAPPI aims to help strengthen peaceful, non-violent approaches in both communities, support peace forces and protect civilians.
