SHUFUNA – Palestinian Women in Reconciliation and Political Participation

Palestine

Titre : SHUFUNA – Palestinian Women in Reconciliation and Political Participation

Pays : Palestine (West Bank and Gaza Strip)

Durée : January 2019 // December 2021

Présentation
Women in the State of Palestine have been an integral part of the Palestinian struggle for statehood. However, Palestinian women continue to be very much under-represented in decision making positions both in the public and private sectors. This is further amplified that Palestinian women, and especially Gaza, have been largely excluded from formal dialogue efforts to end the political division. Their voices and concerns have neither been heard nor included in the various reconciliation talks held and agreements reached since 2005. Reasons for the absence of women in these processes in the particular case of the state of Palestine are multiple. A combination of political, geographical, and social factors impede the ability of Palestinian women to engage in political activism. In addition, the ongoing occupation significantly impacts women’s effective participation in transitional justice and peace processes.

The project, which is implemented by UNDP in partnership with MIFTAH (The Palestinian Initiative for the Promotion of Global Dialogue and Democracy) and WATTAN media network, will take a new approach that will remove the veil of invisibility that women have had to endure for the past 25 years. Through SHUFUNA (SEE US), the project will focus on using multiple tools that will effectively call out decision makers to take the necessary steps to change the status quo and increase women’s participation. SHUFUNA is an innovative multi-sectoral platform of women and men who are striving to be transformational change-makers.
