CAPI-FES Workshop on Asserting Palestinian Rights

The Center for Advancement of Peace Initiatives (CAPI) in cooperation with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) organised a workshop for Palestinian parents from East Jerusalem on 3 April. The first half of the workshop focused on the rights of Palestinian parents of schoolchildren with disabilities in Jerusalem, with Dr Linda Safouri offering advice on how best to represent children’s needs vis-à-vis the local educational authorities. The second part of the workshop, led by the lawyer Samer Suleiman, introduced the Palestinian East-Jerusalemites to some useful methods to better assert their legal rights when dealing with the Jerusalem municipality.
