About

This activity comes as part of “The “PARTAKE” project, implemented by the Palestinian Association for Empowerment and Local Development – REFORM, in partnership with Konrad Adenauer Foundation. “PARTAKE” seeks to enhance the sociopolitical participation of women and youth in decision making processes. To achieve this, the project provides the social and political activists with the ability to engage in deep analysis of power dynamics between different social groups and points of access and develop their capacities to monitor public policies and draft policy papers that are reflective of their communities’ needs. “PARTAKE” also engages youth and women directly with decision makers in policy reform through facilitating public debates, which allows them to find solutions to their daily challenges and take a more active role in the socio-political spheres.

The Palestinian Association for Empowerment and Local Development – REFORM is honored to invite you to participate in a public debate session on the role of social media in affecting the Palestinian public opinion. This session seeks to:

E

Identify the important role of media in initiating a public opinion and affecting decision makers within Palestinian society

E

Assert the public’s right to express their opinions freely without limitations or restrictions

E

Identify the impact of social media and social networking sites on achieving social change
