About Us:

This three-year I'lam project, launched in February 2011, aims to protect, promote and fulfil human rights of the Palestinian minority in Israel vis-à-vis the state and within their own community through the power of a human-rights responsive media. The Action’s specific objective is to build a Human-Rights sensitive media culture in the Arabic and Hebrew media landscapes in Israel.

The right to freedom of expression, the cornerstone of democratic rights and freedoms and enshrined as a fundamental human rights norm under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), is the guiding principle that informs all of the activities and underscores the essence of the Project.The right to freedom of expression means creating a space within the Hebrew media landscape and in the Arabic media for those voices often silenced or unheard – the Palestinian minority and peripheral groups.
