July 17 - 30, 2016
The Militarization and Pathways to Justice Delegation explored Palestinian and Israeli efforts to achieve peace with justice.
Read eyewitness accounts from the ground, reports from meetings, and experiences with Palestinians and Israelis below.
The delegation explored the effects of militarization on Israeli and Palestinian communities and shed light on alternative paths to justice - both those imagined and practiced - charted by Palestinians and Israelis on the ground.
Participants had the unique opportunity to hear directly from Palestinians and Israelis regarding their hopes for peace and the role of the United States, the US government, and other international actors, in promoting a resolution to the conflict.
This delegation was Eyewitness Palestine's 58th, successfully exposing more than 1,100 people to the daily realities facing Palestinians in their quest for justice.
We believe in the power of eye-witness experience and transformation. Given the opportunity to speak directly with Palestinians and Israelis, delegates return to the United States better informed, more energized, and with a deeper understanding of the possibilities for true justice in the Middle East.

Eyewitness Accounts from the Delegation
We invite delegation participants to comment on and react to the experiences they have during our Israel/Palestine delegations in written Trip Reflections.
Individual delegates contribute pieces to these reflections. As such, reflections are not comprehensive accounts of every meeting or experience, but impressions of those things that most impact individuals. Submitted reflections may be edited for clarity or brevity. Trip reports do not necessarily reflect the views of Eyewitness Palestine or delegation partner organizations. We hope you enjoy reading and we encourage you to share these reflections with others.
