|BADIL Resource Center
for Palestinian Residency & Refugee Rights
Why the New Name?
Projects and activities currently coordinated by BADIL were developed and implemented in the framework of the Alternative Information Center (AIC) until 1997.

It was thus decided that former AIC projects focusing on Palestinian residency and refugee rights should become the responsibility of a separate organization. This decision was implemented on 1 January 1998, when BADIL began operating as an independent Palestinian non-profit NGO, temporarly using the name of BADIL Alternative Information Center.
Consequently, we decided to change our name to BADIL Resource Center for Palestinian Residency & Refugee Rights for two reasons:
Looking forward to the continuation of our fruitful cooperation.
