Palestine International Institute
Palestine International Institute (PII) is the first and only Palestinian NGO to specialize in gathering academic and scientific information about communities of Palestinian origin living in Diaspora.
The Institute came to be in 2002, in response to a severe lack of information about Arab and Palestinian communities around the world. Available studies were poor and scattered. In addition, regular and effective connections among these communities were lacking, and there was almost no connection between these communities and the Homeland.
PII's comprehensive approach has been a great motivation for its creative thinking, which, without direct involvement in politics, stimulates major activities within the core of the broader Palestinian national movement.
PII's projects aim to set up a two-way link of interaction between our communities abroad and Palestine as a cause, a homeland, and a future independent state. PII also aspires to establish solid bridges among these communities to empower Palestinians in the West to join their efforts towards serving Palestinian national interests around the world.
