Our Programme Components in Short:
Over the course of the next three years, Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung Palestine/Jordan will work in the following programme areas:
• Democracy and Human Rights
• Environmental Justice
• Policy Analysis
We consider gender and diversity as well as human rights to be a crosscutting issue for our work in all programmes.
In order to promote our goals, we build partnerships with Palestinian and Jordanian NGOs, academic institutions, think tanks, and other strategic stakeholders. We continuously accept suggestions for cooperation. If you would like to discuss a project that is particularly relevant to the goals described below, please contact the respective hbs staff member. For more information about how to apply, please scroll down.
The Democracy and Human Rights programme works to increase opportunities for actors of change to promote social and political participation in Palestine and the Palestinian Diaspora, as well as in Jordan. A special focus lies on younger actors. We further aim to support initiatives of human rights actors, including women’s rights and gender democracy, on the national and community level, as well as on an international level.

In the Environmental Justice programme, we support our partners in communicating a rights-based approach to environmental issues locally, regionally, and internationally with a particular focus on human rights and gender. In addition, we promote a discourse on sustainable and (gender-) just natural resource management with a focus on renewable energy.

Our Policy Analysis programme aims to supply decision-makers and public on a regional and international level (including European and German audiences) with on-the-ground analyses of political developments in Palestine and Jordan.
