    Ecumenical Accompanier role description

    See if Ecumenical Accompaniment in Israel and Palestine is right for you.

    Apply to be a human rights monitor

    We are recruiting for voluntary human rights monitors to serve with the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine & Israel (EAPPI) in the West Bank and Israel in 2021. Human rights monitors working with us will:

    • provide protection by presence to vulnerable communities
    • monitor human rights abuses
    • support Israeli and Palestinian peace activists
    • advocate for an end to the occupation.

    To get an idea of what's involved, read some field reports written by Ecumenical Accompaniers (EAs) on our blog.

    We recruit a year in advance and provide in-depth training and resources to help you to prepare.

    No previous monitoring experience is required. Your expenses will be paid and a living allowance provided.

    We expect EAs to be flexible, hard-working, physically and emotionally robust, open to hearing from different perspectives, and able to represent the programme in a professional manner.

    We welcome applications from people of all faiths and none. Please read the role description and essential advice documents to find out more

    Due to coronavirus public health measures, the closing date has been extended and we are accepting applications on a rolling basis; a final deadline will be announced here in due course. In the meantime, please keep your applications coming.

    Interviews, originally planned for summer 2020, will be rescheduled for autumn 2020 or early 2021.

    Please note that we recruit EAs for the UK and Ireland part of EAPPI only.

    “It is an experience that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I hope I will become an advocate worthy of the many Palestinians and Israelis I met during my term."

    - Veronica, EA from the UK, 2015


    Share the stories

    Please read and share the eyewitness accounts EAs from Britain and Ireland have written on our Eyewitness blog. Can you also share with your friends and networks our EAPPI resources on issues such as education, access to worship and checkpoints?

    You can also ask us for some EAPPI leaflets to share with your local church, school, workplace, or community.

    Invite an Ecumenical Accompanier to speak

    EAs returning to their home communities are more than happy to share their stories by speaking to different audiences. If you would like to invite an EA to speak to your community group, please contact us at eappi@quaker.org.uk.

    Write to your elected representatives

    Contact your elected representative to ask them to act. Pressure from constituents via emails, phone calls and meetings is one of the most important and effective ways we can help influence government policy. To highlight a particular issue, you can send them an Eyewitness blog post.

    To be effective when writing or speaking to an elected representative:

    • keep your points short and specific
    • ask for their view or response
    • always ask them to raise the issue with the relevant minister.
