Launch of Public Opinion Survey on Palestinian-Israeli Conflict with Funds from the Government of JapanDec 18, 2017
18 December 2017 - UNDP’s Programme of Assistance to the Palestinian People (UNDP/PAPP) has been entrusted by the Government of Japan with USD 46,000 to carry out, through the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR), a public opinion survey in relation to the Palestinian Israeli conflict. The activity is conducted as part of the Endowment Fund project, implemented through UNDP/PAPP.
The survey, which will be conducted over a 12-month period, will provide evidence-based analysis of Palestinian and Israeli public opinions on the conflict, and recommendations that are seen to facilitate the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. The survey will cover a representative sample from both communities of around 2,170 people; 1,270 of whom are Palestinians from the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip. The project funding will only cover the Palestinian communities surveyed by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, while Tel Aviv University will conduct the survey on the Israeli side.
The outcomes of the survey will be presented through a report that describes the main findings and focuses on attitudes, drivers of attitudes, and specific constituencies’ receptivity to various trades-offs and compromises.
