Fourth Palestine Human Development Report released

Published by the Development Studies Programme at Birzeit University, the fourth Palestine human development report focuses on the empowerment of Palestinians as the basis for strengthening Palestinian society building. The 2004 Palestine Human Development Report is an attempt to assess the various aspects of the Palestinian condition as a first step toward an integrated approach to the development of Palestinian individuals and society and to strengthen the social fabric needed to support national liberation and development activities. Each section of the report addresses these aspects from two perspectives — the general Palestinian condition, hopes and challenges, and major influencing independence and development.
