Institute of Women’s Studies

Since the establishment of the Women Studies Program in 1994 as an interdisciplinary program, it was committed to teaching, research, gender-based community intervention, and to influencing social policies.  Throughout the past decade, the Institute has sought to realize its goals which focused on: contributing to the development of the study of gender at both bachelor and master levels, using an interdisciplinary approach, increasing scientific knowledge using gender methods in addition to empowering researchers to use feminist analysis tools, and to contribute to the development of Palestinian research competencies.  The goals have also focused on supporting the civil society, especially the women movement, and social movements through providing consulting based on meticulous research.
