Kerem Navot is a new Israeli civil society organization (2012) that proposes a new angle on the ongoing dispossession of land in the West Bank, especially in area C which comprises 61% of the West Bank. It does so through its unique and groundbreaking research projects that aim to challenge the systems and policies behind these decades-long practices. Kerem Navot uses comprehensive land-use research, employing methodologies developed over years of experience in the field. Our work is driven by the large information and knowledge gaps that exist on the subject. We aim to illuminate these gaps.
We are obligated to empower and professionally strengthen other parties that are active in the anti-occupation movement. Therefore, Kerem Navot's research conclusions and database are generously shared with other leading Palestinian and Israeli NGOs as well as with international organs.
