Article - Al-Shabaka in 2024: Recommitting to our Collective Values

Al-Shabaka, the Palestinian Policy Network, is pleased to announce its resource network of nearly 50 policy advisors — scholars, professionals, and activists — from the Middle East, the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Al-Shabaka was launched in April 2010 as the first independent, global, policy-related Palestinian organization. It is an Internet-based, transnational think tank — crossing borders to draw on and benefit from the diverse experiences of Palestinians around the world. Al-Shabaka provides a vibrant forum for Palestinian policy and strategy development and analysis, and its policy advisors are available for informed comment and analysis on the issues of today.

Al-Shabaka’s policy advisors bring a broad range of expertise covering Palestinian politics, the Arab-Israeli conflict, U.S. policy toward the Middle East, international law and human rights, economic development, civil society movements, and refugee rights and issues. Advisors include Ali Abunimah, Amjad Atallah, Sam Bahour, Omar Barghouti, Diana Buttu, Beshara Doumani, Noura Erakat, Haidar Eid, Randa Farah, Rashid Khalidi, Camille Mansour, Salwa Mikdadi, Mary Nazzal-Batayneh, Mouin Rabbani, May Seikaly, and Dalal Yassine (see for a full list).

Al-Shabaka policy briefs and commentaries have analyzed the current state of negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis, the role of civil society movements and organizations in the U.S. and Israel-Palestine, the rights and legal status of Palestinian refugees, and economic development.

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.
