Article - New Annual Report: Al-Shabaka in 2015 and Beyond

Al-Shabaka is pleased to share its 2015 annual report, which takes a look ahead to 2016 and beyond. We will also soon share the report in Arabic as part of our commitment to publish in both languages.

The organization has made great strides in its quality output and in its growing network of policy analysts. Indeed, 2015 marks Al-Shabaka’s coming of age just five years after its launch, as is clear from a glance at our policy analysis and thematic focus (Section 2) and the capacity of our intellectual hub (Section 4).

And yet this is no time for complacency. Israel continues its inexorable – and illegal – colonial project in the occupied Palestinian territories, its clear aim to squeeze the Palestinians in the minimum amount of territory while giving the maximum land, water and other resources to Israeli Jewish settlers.

Thousands of Palestinians languish in prison without rights, forcing many to resort to prolonged hunger strikes to secure them. Gaza remains under an inhumane siege, while home demolitions and other forms of collective punishment are on the rise in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The rights of the Palestinian citizens of Israel are under grave threat while those of the Palestinian refugees and exiles are unaddressed.

Although there are efforts to jostle the question of Palestine off the world stage as other heartbreaking tragedies compete for attention, the growing movement for Palestinian rights is making sure it remains in full view until those rights are achieved.

Al-Shabaka is proud to build its global knowledge base in support of the quest for Palestinian rights under international law. We could not have come as far as we have without our network members’ contribution of their policy analysis, our partners’ engagement and support, and the generosity of our donors.

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.
