Following the dramatic news coming from Israel and Palestine, the Education Inspiring Peace Laboratory expresses its deepest concerns for the death toll, injuries, taking of hostages and displacement of the Israeli and Palestinian civilian populations.

As an association committed to the promotion of a peaceful world through the implementation of peace education activities, the EIP Lab firmly supports the need to pursue a peaceful settlement of the ongoing armed conflict.

It is our belief that all diplomatic efforts should be channelled to reach an immediate ceasefire, which is a necessary pre-condition not only for the provision of much-needed emergency and humanitarian aid to the civilian population in the short term but, more importantly, to inaugurate a larger debate on the construction of a concrete path towards a sustainable peace in the longer term.
