Built on a Canadian model, the McGill Middle East Program in Civil Society and Peace Building (MMEP), established in 1997, works in cooperation with Palestinian, Jordanian and Israeli institutional partners to promote the rule of law, equity, peace and civil society among disadvantaged communities in the
Middle East. The program's landmark cross-border cooperation between Israel, Palestine and Jordan, over the course of many years, stands alone in an area defined by conflict and violence. MMEP's work to strengthen civil society through local institutions and promote access to justice by initiating practical actions has led to the recognition of common goals in disadvantaged areas. The program places great emphasis on the empowerment of children, youth and women, involving poor population groups in processes that affect their lives. These efforts have created links between government and citizens, created opportunities for cooperation and sharing of expertise, and promoted a culture of peace in the region.
