Naama Baumgarten-Sharon

Naama Baumgarten-Sharon has been a peace and anti-occupation activist since she completed her military service as an intelligence officer in 2001, and has worked professionally for Israeli NGOs, most notably as a researcher at B'Tselem, and for international NGOs operating in Israel-Palestine. She holds a BA and MA in Hebrew Bible from the Hebrew University and an MPP from the University of Toronto and also used to be a guide at an archaeological museum in Jerusalem. As part of her human rights work she has written about the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, with a focus on how these gender-blind policies have an especially harsh impact on women's rights; the water crisis in Gaza and the West Bank and its history and evolvement; detention of minors; military courts; demonstrations; demolitions; and the long-term impacts of occupation on the Palestinian economy and society.
