Article - Al-Shabaka & Partners Produce Joint Youth Policy Papers

The Palestinian Youth Together for Change project, launched three years ago by the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), led to the formation of the youth group Mitharkeen.  Al-Shabaka was proud to be an AFSC partner together with PalVision and Baladna, and we are very happy to share the papers and other output produced by Palestinian youth, which tackled the question of overcoming Palestinian political and social fragmentation, the right to freedom of movement, and pursuing accountability for Israel’s violations of human rights, among other areas.

In times of profound devastation such as these, we take heart in knowing that our work is needed more than ever before. Al-Shabaka serves as a vital hub of Palestinian knowledge, analysis, and expertise for organizers, media, and policymakers alike. At our core, we are a think tank for the movement; our aim is to provide space for Palestinians to convene and strategize, and to produce Palestinian analysis that informs the frameworks of mobilizing efforts across the globe.
Press release
It is with great disappointment that we must clarify the facts pertaining to Al-Shabaka’s partnership with the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) due to damaging misinformation circulated by the FDFA and its representatives.
Press release
We’ve entered 2024 at a time of unprecedented loss for the Palestinian people. As part of its genocide campaign since last October, the Israeli regime has murdered tens of thousands, displaced millions, and devastated every corner of Palestinian life in Gaza. The horror being waged across Gaza has left its mark on Palestinians worldwide, including those who make up Al-Shabaka’s policy network and staff.
