The Centre for Training and Networking in Nonviolent ActionKURVE Wustrow was founded in 1980 with the aim of turning concerns about violent conflict, environmental degradation and social injustice into conscious nonviolent action.

KURVE Wustrow conducts trainings, workshops and events in the field of civil, nonviolent conflict transformation at home and abroad. We send International Peace Workers as part of the “Civil Peace Service” (CPS) to selected conflict contexts. For this purpose, KURVE Wustrow is closely cooperating with partner organisations in the Western Balkans, Palestine/Israel, in Sudan, in Ukraine and in South and Southeast Asia. Further focal points of our work include our commitment to climate and resource protection and against nuclear energy.


For our CPS-programme

“Strengthening nonviolent initiatives and human rights”

we are looking together with our partner organisation

Human Rights Defenders Fund for an

International Peace Worker (m/f/d) in Israel/Palestine


Fields of work:

The International Peace Worker (IPW) works part-time within our partner organisation Human Rights Defenders Fund (HRDF) in Jerusalem and part-time supports a nonviolent initiative. KURVE Wustrow’s cooperation office is situated in Al-Walajah.

HRDF has since 2011 been supporting human rights defenders in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory with legal aid and other means against intimidation and harassment by state authorities or extra-parliamentary groups. In the CPS-project, HRDF together with the IPW advocates to the international community to raise awareness of the status of HRDs – publicly and in background talks with politicians. HRDF also supports HRDs in the field of psycho-social well-being and self-care.

Nonviolent initiatives opposing the military occupation of the Palestinian territory have been supported by KURVE Wustrow’s IPWs for a decade. IPWs advise and support groups in conflict transformative project implementation, capacity building trainings related to nonviolent conflict transformation, human rights and international law. They also support in network building, strategical organisational development and administrative tasks.



Due to on-going approval processes by the funding German ministry (BMZ), there is no certainty about the non-violent initiative to cooperate with at the moment.
