Legal Memos

Legal memos aim to draw the attention of Palestinian decision makers to violations of the law whilst highlighting the appropriate means available to enforce the law in the best possible manner in accordance with international criteria. These memos contribute effectively to MUSAWA's strategic goal to contribute to the upholding of the rule of law in the State of Palestine.


Below is an overview of most legal memos that were sent by MUSAWA. In addition the legal memos are published in our multi-annual magazine Eye on Justice, which can be found here.
