Al Mezan Center for Human Rights

The Al Mezan Center for Human Rights is a Palestinian non-governmental, non-partisan organization that works to promote respect and protection for all human rights, particularly ESCR, in the Gaza Strip as part of the Occupied Palestinian Territories through research, legal intervention, advocacy and awareness with a sound combination of professionalism and community participation. Its guiding principles include equal human worth, equal respect of all human rights, individual and collective, as enshrined in international law and jurisprudence. Al Mezan envisions a Palestinian free, sovereign society where all women, men and children enjoy the benefits of social justice, human rights, the merit of the rule of law and good governance fully and equally.

A grant from the Caipirinha Foundation will be used to support Al Mezan’s core work including training and awareness-raising among communities in Gaza, especially in the refugee camps, in order for them to access human rights information. The grant will also be used to support Al Mezan’s follow-up reporting and advocacy on the Goldstone Report that reported on the violations of international human rights and humanitarian law during Operation Cast Lead.
