2002: Palestine / Israel: End the Illegal Occupation of Palestine

In 2002, the ecumenical campaign « End the Illegal Occupation of Palestine : Support a Just Peace in the Middle East » aimed to mobilize WCC member churches and ecumenical partners and coordinate efforts to address the root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The campaign raised awareness in the churches of the history of the conflict and issues at stake, facilitated delegation visits, distributed prayers from church leaders in Jerusalem, and sought coordinated international advocacy alongside the local churches and peace and human-rights organizations.

Out of the campaign, the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) was formed.
