Parents Circle - Families Forum at Georgetown

Parents Circle - Families Forum at Georgetown

Starting last year, The Master of Arts in Conflict Resolution Program, together with the President’s Office and several other faculty at Georgetown have initiated a long-term partnership with the Parents Circle - Families Forum (PCFF).

The organization, founded in 1995, is composed of over 500 Palestinian and Israeli bereaved families who have lost family members to the conflict. The members are actively involved in dialogue, peacebuilding and reconciliation work across the conflict divide. President DeGioia of Georgetown has expressed strong support for their work, and the Conflict Resolution Program has developed an ongoing collaboration with the PCFF consisting of a number of site visits and exchanges.

As part of the on-going partnership, from October 29-31, 2008, Georgetown hosted nine members of the organization for a three-day capacity building session. This event was designed to assist the organization in developing additional programs and building skills to advance their work in promoting peace and reconciliation between communities in Israel and Palestine.
