“A seven-year-old child in Gaza has already witnessed three wars in their lifetime. This is unacceptable.”
Jan Egeland, NRC’s Secretary General
Large-scale displacement took place during the wars of 1948 and 1967, when Israel occupied the West Bank, including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. Many of those displaced have never been able to return. There are currently over 5 million Palestinian refugees spread across Palestine, as well as in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.
Through our programme in Palestine, we protect and assist those affected by or threatened with displacement. NRC Palestine has offices in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron and Gaza, where we provide legal counselling to promote access to human rights, shelter, water and sanitation, and quality education. Nationally and globally, we advocate for the rights of displaced Palestinians. We work to reach Palestinians who are displaced or who face imminent threats of displacement. Together with local authorities and community-based organizations, we establish mechanisms monitoring the needs of displaced Palestinians, and promoting community-owned solutions.
Established in late- 2009, the ICLA programme aims to improve access to justice for Palestinians on housing, land and property (HLP) rights with the aim to enhance security of tenure. In addition to the legal counselling provided through the Legal Aid Centre in Gaza city or through mobile legal clinics that cover all the Gaza strip, ICLA provides information and awareness-raising sessions on HLP law to grassroots communities throughout Gaza as well as offers legal training and building the capacities on HLP rights to lawyers, trainee lawyers, law students, community leaders and humanitarian workers in Gaza. In addition, ICLA also co-chairs the Legal Task Force (LTF) in Gaza, whose members include local legal aid organisations, human rights organisations, legal academic institutions and women’s organisations that provide legal aid.
