Human Rights and Good Governance Secretariat celebrates International Human Rights Day
In celebration of International Human Rights Day, the Human Rights and Good Governance Secretariat held a forum for dialogue discussing “Human Rights in the oPt: Protection and Promotion” on the 8th of December. Leaders Hall in Ramallah and the Grand Palace Hotel in Gaza simultaneously hosted the event which was attended by over one hundred Secretariat partners, international donors, PA representatives and members of the media. The Human Rights and Good Governance Secretariat is managed by the NGO Development Center (NDC) on behalf of four European donors: Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark and the Netherlands. Established in 2008, the Secretariat is now in its second successful phase providing a mechanism to more effectively manage the donors’ long-standing commitment to human rights and good governance. Via the channelling of funds, engagement in sector development and promotion of policy dialogue, the Secretariat has established a fertile environment for the partner NGOs to flourish and grow.
