Filastinyat Strategy

We believe that committing the institutions of civil and political societies to those goals, to the integration of gender and youth perspectives and to the protection of and respect for Palestinian women’s rights will significantly enhance the legitimacy of all formal and/or informal discourses and the durability of alternative discourse, as well as provide the framework for the reconstruction of democratic and accountable institutions and structures that are capable of creating and sustaining a stable Palestinian society enjoying democratic values and practices. Alternative media discourse and equitable participation of women and youth are not just abstract social justice goals, but are also decisive factors in building a just and a lasting peace, democratic governance and sustainable development.

Strategic Objectives:
1. Enhancement of public policies responsiveness to the women's discourse.
2. Strengthen the role of Palestinian female journalists in Palestinian media and public life
3. Enhancement of women and youth participation in internal dialogue, policy formulation and decision making.
4. Improving Filastiniyat’s Capacity; increasing the presence in local, regional and international coalitions and building staff capabilities to match the new strategy.
