Show Notes

During my June podcast break between season 2 and 3 you can listen to three episodes I made for PAX Palestine Podcast. 

PAX is a peace organization based in the Netherlands. 

PAX works together with committed citizens and partners to protect civilians against acts of war, to end armed violence, and to build a just peace. 

In Palestine PAX supports local partners in building resilient communities, promoting human security and equality in the political, cultural and social domain, and in fighting the injustices resulting from the protracted occupation.

The PAX Palestine Podcast features interviews with some of the local Palestinian partners of PAX. 


In the West Bank, PAX works with the Palestinian Center for Peace and Democracy (PCPD) on issues like promoting gender equality, preparing young Palestinians to participating in election campaigns and municipal councils, and holding municipalities accountable for their policies and promises of inclusive politics.

In this episode we speak with Naseef Muallem and Ekram Zubaydi about the work of the PCPD and the upcoming elections in Palestine. We also included some snippets of a discussion between Palestinian students about their views on democracy and the elections in Palestine.
