The Palestinian Initiative for the Promotion of Global Dialogue and Democracy




An independent, democratic and sovereign Palestinian state, which grants Palestinians their basic rights, preserves their freedom and dignity, and enjoys international recognition and respect.



Established in Jerusalem in December 1998, MIFTAH seeks to promote the principles of democracy and good governance within various components of Palestinian society; it further seeks to engage local and international public opinion and official circles on the Palestinian cause. To that end, MIFTAH adopts the mechanisms of an active and in-depth dialogue, the free flow of information and ideas, as well as local and international networking.



  1. Empower effective leadership within all components of Palestinian society in order to enhance democracy and good governance and raise public awareness concerning the rights and responsibilities of good citizenship.
    • Women and youth leaders are active in the political and social spheres.
    • All components of Palestinian society are engaged in promoting democratic processes and enhancing monitoring and accountability mechanisms.
    • Women and youth are represented in decision-making at the local and national levels.
    • Civil society is active in promoting rule of law.
  2. Influence policy and legislation to ensure their safeguarding of civil and social rights for all sectors and their adherence to principles of good governance.
    • Components of civil society, including women and youth movements are influential in the Palestinian political system.
    • General policies serve achieving protection, justice and safeguard the freedoms of Palestinians, in-line with UN resolutions and international agreements that promote human rights, especially for women.
