The Right to Education Campaign in Al Quds University was launched as extrapolation efforts with other campaigns that were launched in different Palestinian universities to defend the right to education in the Occupied Palestinian territories.

Our decision to launch this campaign comes at a time when students of our university are facing serious obstructions to pursuing a university education.  Previous and current violations our students face include:

  • Check points, the Wall and other restrictions on movements of the students. 
  • Detentions of several students and teachers with a number of cases of administrative detention.
  • Several measures of collective punishment in the University Street and around the campus of the university.

The symbolic relevance of Al Quds University as the only Arab university in Jerusalem, is the main reason for the former and other obstructions that imposed by the Israeli Occupying Army on the university staff, students and properties. In overall, the circumstances of the education in Al-Quds University shaped the aims of the campaign as follow;

  • Monitor, document and report the Israeli human rights violations in the university.
  • Follow up the affairs of the university students in prison.
  • Raise the awareness in all available communities about the status of the educational process in Palestine and Al Quds University in particular.
  • Raise the awareness in the students bodies about the importance of pursuing their right to education as guaranteed by the international human rights standards.
