The Public Peace Process

Public Peace Process


This Public Peace Process was defined at the June, 1991 conference — Building A Common Future — in Ben Lomond, California.

The historic meeting was hosted by the Beyond War Foundation and Stanford University.

A group of Israeli and Palestinian citizen-leaders — facilitated by Dr. Harold Saunders — gathered to create the first signed yet non-binding Palestinian-Israeli agreement, FRAMEWORK FOR A PUBLIC PEACE PROCESS.

The historic document proposed practical elements of a political agreement.

Moreover, it clarified that there must be a parallel, participatory citizen-driven, relationship-based public peace process for any government agreement to succeed.
