Institute of  Public Policies

The Institute of  Public Policies (IPP) was founded by a group of experts in the political situation in Palestine. The driving force behind the creation of this institute came from a need to create and offer public policy based on specialized research and scientific studies in Palestine.

With the absence of a public policy-making body in Palestine, IPP was launched to improve the making of the general policies in the public and private sectors and in all other political, economic and social sectors.

IPP assumes the role of policy-making for bettering the Palestinian community. It reaches out to decision makers, especially youth leaders, to help them gain objective knowledge and make positive and qualitative change. IPP is registered at the Ministry of the Interior as a non-profit organization under RA-22434.

A Palestinian organization that believes in pluralism and enlightenment, IPP works closely with Palestinian decision makers in public and private sectors, including non-governmental (non-profit) organizations, to search for proper solutions to the fundamental, sensitive and tough issues that face the people of Palestine.

The Institute of Public Policies (IPP) is a non-profit organization that dedicates itself to improve and support the making of public policy through high-quality scientific research and objective analysis. IPP serves the Palestinian population in general.
