Alliance for Middle East Peace
Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., with offices in Europe, Israel, and Palestine, the Alliance for Middle East Peace (ALLMEP) is the largest and fastest growing network of Palestinian and Israeli peacebuilders. We envision a Middle East in which our community of Palestinian and Israeli peacebuilders lead their societies toward and beyond a sustainable peace.
With a coalition of over 150 organizations—and tens of thousands of Israelis and Palestinians—we foster cooperation that increases impact, add stability in times of crisis, and build an environment conducive to peace over the long term.
On the ground, our expert team, drawn from both the shared society and cross-border communities, works to incentivize cooperation and develop partnerships, as well as provide member services and programming, so that our community operates with greater strategic impact. Internationally, our teams in the United States and Europe work to amplify the visibility of members in the media and in the corridors of power, and to ensure that the field is adequately resourced, so that it can reach its inherent potential. This is not merely an ambition. To date, our advocacy has helped to introduce more than $380 million in government support into the field, including the creation of USAID’s Conflict Management and Mitigation Fund and the Nita M. Lowey Middle East Partnership for Peace Act, as well as funding from international governments.
