Understanding Active Citizenship of Palestinian Youth Across Borders

Palestinian youth is a highly marginalised group within a fragmented society with
dysfunctional participatory and engagement mechanisms. The voices of Palestinian
youth are not heard which is both a democratic problem and a neglect of their
human rights. Through this project an inclusive and highly participatory survey
among Palestinian youth in different locations will be carried out. The youth will
then be involved to make sense of the differences and similarities of the challenges
and obstacles for effective active citizenship. Tools will be created to disseminate
the findings and information to international and Palestinian civil society, as well as
duty bearers with the intention to increase understanding of youth perspectives
and lay the foundations for a more inclusive approach.
