These meetings are part of a 3-year project funded by the European Union and Oxfam Novib, whose goal is to improve awareness and respect of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Such meetings are part of persistent efforts made by PCHR to promote democratic awareness in the Palestinian community under the lack of the Palestinians' confidence in the democratic process due to the political fragmentation and its consequences.
