Review

I was interested in visiting Palestine and found the Palestinian Centre whilst searching for relevant programmes.

The programme includes visits to the Old City, to Al-Fawwah camp, to various human rights organisations, to the court, and meetings with lawyers and human rights activists. We organised a workshop and facilitated a group discussion with law undergraduates from Hebron University.

The Palestinian legal system is complex and fascinating. Under occupation and in the absence of a legislative council, the resilience and innovativeness of legal practitioners is commendable. I was fortunate to meet people with bright ideas for improving Palestinian society.

Hebronite society is close-knit and welcoming, so it is easy to feel at home. I will have fond memories of many people, the streets and the food.

Generally, I found Hebron to be safe. There is some level of street harassment especially if you are a foreign female, but it is limited. The locals are very helpful, so if you encounter difficulties, don’t hesitate to check in with somebody.

Hebron is a really interesting city!

I would recommend you to visit Palestine, and particularly Hebron, to see for yourself how the society here works :)

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
