The Within and Without the State (WWS) programme is using a variety of approaches to strengthen civil society and promote more accountable governance in conflict-affected and fragile contexts. The programme is working in Afghanistan, Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel, South Sudan and Yemen.

This case study features the work in the West Bank. Here WWS provided co-financing to the EU-funded project, Fostering Community Change in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, which ran from April 2010 until November 2012.

The project strengthened the capacity of Palestinian civil society to identify its needs and priorities, and engage with power holders around these issues.

This brochure outlines the main activities of the project, describes its impact, and offers key insights and lessons.
