In cooperation with An-Najah Public Relations Department, the Faculty of Law organized a workshop on April 13, 2017 on promotion and engagement of youth in the electoral process. Held in the faculty’s Moot Court. The workshop addressed a number of key issues. One of these key issues was enhancement and empowerment of Palestinian youth in the electoral process and increase of their participation in it. The workshop also touched on the lack of interest by some Palestinian youth in participation in the elections, and the quota system which allocates five seats for men as opposed to one for women. This was in addition to women’s participation and empowerment in the process to enable them to get their shares.
The workshop was presided over by Faculty Dean Dr. Mo’ayad Hattab. Participants in the workshop included faculty member Ms. Reem El-Qassem and head of Public Relations and Communication Department Dr. Abdelkareem Sarhan. In attendance were students from the Faculty of Law and Faculty of Media. At the conclusion of the workshop, Dr. Hattab asked students questions about the extent of their knowledge and understanding of the electoral process.
