New policy brief proposes concrete recommendations on how to strengthen Palestinian resilience in the face of Covid-19

Published on Friday, 26th of February 2021

A new policy brief by CMI and its partner Masarat addresses the repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Palestinian society. The policy brief proposes concrete recommendations on how to strengthen the resilience of the Palestinian people in the face of crisis.

The booklet, consisting of seven articles which are written by Palestinian experts, is titled “Strengthening Palestinian Resilience: Navigating Through the Covid-19 Crisis in the Midst of a Deepening Occupation”.

The policy brief offers guidance to decision-makers, insights to experts, and an overview for the public on the expected short and long-term repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

“The booklet seeks to give guidance and lay a roadmap for sustainable emergency interventions be it in terms of constitutional processes, educational tools, or gender equality.”

“The lessons of the ongoing crisis need to be scrutinized and evaluated to prepare for the next one. This publication is a contribution to these efforts in Palestine.”

The policy brief, the first in a series of publications, is an outcome of dialogue workshops organized in the framework of the “Supporting Resilience through Dialogue” project implemented by CMI and the Palestinian Center for Policy Research and Strategic Studies (Masarat).

The project aims to promote the Palestinian consensus and resilience by providing a platform for effective dialogue, and increasing international involvement in the attempts to attain Palestinian reconciliation.
