People to People Programme
1995 Oslo Norway
1995, Oslo (Norway), under Article VIII of an Interim Agreement, following signature of Declaration of Principles by the PLO and Israel, 1993, Washington DC (USA), resulting from secret negotiations in Oslo. As of Jun 2007 "discontinued".
Palestinian and Israeli politicians and negotiators committed themselves to a peace process and to formulation of lasting solutions as a result of individual negotiators meeting on an equal basis for the first time. Therefore, since peace is agreed upon by politicians but must be built by the people: ensure cooperation between Israeli and Palestinians in enhancing the dialogue and relations between their peoples; ensure wider exposure of the two publics to the peace process, its current situation and predicted results; ensure that both sides take steps to foster public debate and involvement, to remove barriers to interaction and to increase people-to-people exchange and interaction within all areas of cooperation; support joint initiatives by Israeli and Palestinian public and private organizations, giving priority to initiatives which potentially bridge large audiences in the two societies; emphasize the role of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in direct people-to-people interaction and grass roots cooperation.
