Photos for Peace
CPD was honored to host Mr Nayef Hashlamoun, a Palestinian photo-journalist and a reporter for Reuters. Mr Hashlamoun showed students pictures that he took in Palestine, and explained the circumstances in which these pictures were taken and how they are relevant for peacebuilding. The lecture given by Mr Hashlamoun was very powerful and resourceful and the questions asked by the students contributed greatly to the discussion. Mr Hashlamoun strongly believes that peace will be restored in Palestine and Israel and his organization called ALWATAN CENTER promotes peacebuilding and civil rights through education. The ALWATAN Center engages in different activities that range from food and supply distribution to workshops on the principles and techniques of nonviolence, peace building and democracy. The Peacebuilding and development Institute is looking forward to partner with such a wonderful organization and hopes to have more opportunities to work with Mr. Nayef Hashlamoun in the future!
