German Development Service (DED)
The DED helps developing countries by selecting and sending experts to local partner organisations in a variety of fields. In Palestine, the DED works with local NGOs and public institutions in the fields of water, waste, vocational training, democracy, institutional support, and civil peace service. CCRR was chosen as a partner in this field of civil peace service. The DED has supported CCRR with a ‘peace worker’ since 2003.

The Young Politicians Program ended in mid-2005 and the Media and Conflict Project in April 2006. Peace Education continues to the fall of 2008, while Negotiating Our Future continues until mid-2009. A new wide scale project will start in January 2010 under the title ‘Simulating the Arab Peace Initiative’. It is funded by the European commission in the framework of the ‘Partnership for Peace’ Program.
