Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2009
Ashoka commemorates and celebrates the life and work of this deceased Ashoka Fellow.
This description of Yehudah Paz's work was prepared when Yehudah Paz was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
For three decades, Yehudah Paz has been bringing peace to the highly conflicted area of the Middle East. Yehudah links human cooperation with economic development and focuses on civil society as the vehicle for successful social transformation. Through fostering collaborative Arab-Israeli grassroots enterprises with an emphasis on sustainable growth, he is providing developmental opportunities for conflicted communities, so that peace is sustained through clear prospects of improvements in living standards and hope for the future. Yehudah’s work is now spreading globally.
