Huda Abuarquob is the first on-the-ground Regional director of the Alliance for Middle East Peace (ALLMEP), a network of more that 100 civil society organizations working in conflict, transformation, development and coexistence in the Middle East among Palestinians, Israelis, Arabs and Jews. 

In January 1019, she participated in designing, teaching and evaluating an interfaith study tour on women in the three Abrahamic religions called Hakima.  As a Fullbright scholar that studied conflict transformation and peace, she has taught and trained hundreds of students in Israel, Palestine and the US and has been a longstanding active leader in grassroots Palestinian and Israeli initiatives focused on Feminist Inclusive Political Activism.  Huda was honoured in December 2017 with the first-ever Laudato Si’Prize, awarded at the Vatican in honour of her lifelong commitment to peace and peacebuilding.
