Here are 5 very good reasons why you can feel proud of Al-Shabaka’s track record since it was launched in April 2010.
New Policy Circles in 2013. This knowledge building mechanism brings Palestinian and other experts together to focus on specific issues and publish their analysis. Issues for 2013: alternative approaches to Palestinian return, development aid, and gender equality that also address our dispossession, occupation, and inequality.
We spark debates on campus. Academics at Birzeit and Al Quds universities consider our briefs “essential reading" and our work has also been promoted by research centers at the London School of Economics and McGill University, among others.
We’ve created a unique, global space for Palestinian strategic thinking. More than 80 Palestinian writers and thinkers worldwide have joined our online think tank, both established scholars and emerging voices, women as well as men.
We challenged and influenced key policy debates through more than 50 policy briefs, commentaries, and roundtables. Among the issues addressed: the question of UN membership for a state of Palestine; reform of the national movement; an alternative resistance economy; and rights of Palestinian refugees and exiles.
And we've put a strong Palestinian policy voice on the map, inspiring reactions from officials, parliamentarians, activists, and the public. We also amplified Al-Shabaka’s voice through more than 25 op-eds in leading outlets like Foreign Policy, The Hill, LA Times, Al-Jazeera English, the FT, and Al Quds Arabi.
Thank you. Your contribution is crucial in helping Al-Shabaka to put a powerful Palestinian policy voice on the local and international map.
