National Conference: Towards Integrated Social Policy in Palestine
The Ministry of Planning in cooperation with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), implemented the integrated social policy project in Palestine, followed by the National Conference: Towards Integrated Social Policy in Palestine (Ramallah, 9 June 2009). The Conference was held in line with the orientations of the Palestinian National Authority and the Ministry of Planning to design an integrated social policy sensitive to Palestinian specificities, reflected in the struggle for freedom and independence along with construction, democracy and development.
The Conference was the culmination of a national dialogue process that accompanied the issuance of the National Report on Integrated Social Policy in Palestine since the Oslo Accords from September 1997 to the end of 2008. The report reviewed the content, design mechanisms, institutional frameworks
that produce, implement and monitor this policy in order to identify gaps, and propose recommendations to help improve, develop, design, implement and monitor the integrated social policy and developmental plans in the country.
