Ir Amim (“City of Nations”) aspires to a more viable and equitable Jerusalem, shared by 2 political communities -Israeli and Palestinian, and to create conditions for a future political resolution in Jerusalem.
Ir Amim works to halt harmful unilateral actions - that impede equitability, undermine Jerusalem’s stability, or threaten to derail negotiations on final status issues. Our daily monitoring, and ongoing policy and legal advocacy form the basis of this work.

Ir Amim also works to re-orient the public discourse on Jerusalem away from the myth of a "Unified Jerusalem," by focusing on the realities and long-term ramifications of current Israeli policies. Thousands of people each year learn about the complexities of East Jerusalem via our study tours, media work, films, briefings, and educational programs.

Ir Amim also supports Palestinian grassroots civil society and institutional-building efforts. We help to build capacity of Palestinian organizations and institutions in Jerusalem, in order to counter growing despair and improve the quality of life in East Jerusalem.

Over the years, Ir Amim has earned a reputation of being a key player in Jerusalem, whose knowledge and expertise is heeded by by policy makers, diplomats, and the Israeli public. We have worked hard to earn this reputation. In 2009, our successes include: *Freezing plans to demolish 88 homes in the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan in East Jerusalem, together with other organizations; *Filing objections to plans to build new Israeli neighborhoods that would limit development of adjacent Palestinian neighborhoods; *Petitioning the municipality and the Ministry of Education to build much-needed classrooms in East Jerusalem and compelling the city to allow parents to register their children in municipal schools. *Exposing 20,000 Israelis since Ir Amim's inception to the realities of East Jerusalem through our professional study-tours *Providing capacity building assistance and training to several nascent East Jerusalem community-based initiative
