The Arab Thought Forum (ATF) is committed to the belief that state structures must be developed to serve and be responsive to an active and critical public, which is conscious of its obligations and duties, as well as its rights and entitlements
In order to further achieve ATF s dedication and commitment to a participatory Palestinian democratic society, it initiated various conferences and symposia in Jerusalem and the principal districts of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The main objective behind these meetings is to encourage debate, solicit opinion and support the democratic process by encouraging transparency and accountability in the government and the involvement of all segments of the society. ATF designed these meetings whereby they may attract the maximum participation from the Palestinian leadership and public. The main principle behind these meetings is to put to action sought after concepts by demonstrating the benefits of actual involvement in democratic process.
