BADIL Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights delivered the second training session of the Visualizing Jerusalem Project on Friday 9 September 2016. This session provided training on refugee rights within International Law as well as a specific focus on the status of Palestinian Refugees and the protections afforded to them within these laws.

Visualizing Jerusalem is delivered by BADIL in collaboration with three community-based organizations in Jerusalem: al-Bustan-Silwan Association, Burj Al-Luqluq Community Center Association, and Youth Development Department. With 30 participants from Jerusalem, this project aims to increase their knowledge of the policies of forcible transfer that Israel carries out in Jerusalem, as well as provide them with the required tools to identify these policies in practice and develop methods to resist them.
