The Jerusalem Institute of Justice International Law and Public Diplomacy Department, strives to uphold human rights in the Middle East and safeguard the legitimate standing of the State of Israel among the Nations.
We utilize legal and research tools in order to advocate in International Legal forums across the globe. Through research, drafting and presenting complaints, evidence and testimonies to the International Criminal Court and Governmental bodies, we target perpetrators of human rights violations that have so far enjoyed impunity.
The universality of human rights is a standard that requires constant vigilance and protection. Not just in the Middle East, but also in the global arena. JIJ’s research and advocacy team dedicates thousands of hours a year to create awareness and policy changes with the goal of positively impacting the lives of millions living in oppression.
Legal Action in the International Arena – We use the legal tools at our disposal, with the goal to bring to justice perpetrators of human rights violations – click here to learn more.
We cannot ignore the events taking place in our region. JIJ began researching the state of human rights in the Palestinian Authority and Gaza. It became clear to us that the massive foreign aid given to help the lives of Palestinians is not reaching those who most need it. Their corrupt government leaders are getting rich while violating every basic human right and freedom.
We strongly believe that to be Pro-Israeli, you don’t have to be Anti-Palestinian and to be Pro-Palestinian; you don’t have to be Anti-Israeli. We must work for the advancement of all peoples as we are all created in the image of our Maker.
We can make a difference through advocacy, education and the promotion of dialogue. Our answers to hard questions are based on research and facts.
Our dedicated team of researchers has spent thousands of hours interviewing and fact finding about human rights abuses related to the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Palestinian Refugees and Islamic terrorism. What we’ve learned has enabled us to bring a factual approach to the discussion about human rights in the region.
We have created fact sheets, pamphlets and videos to help explain some of the toughest issues Israel and the Jewish community face today. These materials impact million of lives globally through our social media outlets.
