Muwatin, The Palestinian Institute for the Study of Democracy
Muwatin, The Palestinian Institute for the Study of Democracy, was founded in January 1992 to promote the study and development of democracy in Palestine and in the region. Muwatin was established at a critical juncture when, for the first time in their history, Palestinians were able to govern themselves while seeking to establish an independent and sovereign state. Muwatin is committed to playing a clear and effective role in the process of democratic transformation in Palestine. It is governed by an independent Board of Trustees and is based in Ramallah, Palestine.
