    Goals / remit

BADIL is a not for profit organization, and does not carry a specific partisan, religious, or ethnic identity. BADIL is concerned with the Palestinian refugee issue as a central issue of the Palestinian national struggle. BADIL works for the implementation of Palestinian Residency and refugee rights as enshrined in international law, and UN Resolutions and conventions. It is legally owned by a General Assembly which is composed of Palestinian activists and human rights defenders.
Vision: BADIL is guided by a firm commitment to the principles of international law, in particular International Human Rights Law, including a role for the people in bringing about social and political change for freedom from racism, foreign occupation and colonial domination, and for self-determination.
Mission: To empower Palestinians, in particular refugees and IDPs, and assist local, regional and international actors to achieve a situation where international law and best practice are applied so that forcible displacement of Palestinians will end, and durable solutions and reparations for the displaced can be implemented.
The strategic plan is based upon three programs/pillars:
1. Building a consensus about the root causes of Palestinian ongoing displacement and dispossession
2. Building a consensus on a rights-based strategy based upon international law, relevant resolutions and principles of justice.
3. Building stronger civil society actions and campaigns to generate more political will among duty bearers to respect international law and protect the rights of the Palestinian people, including the right of return of refugees and IDPs.
The predominant cross-cutting theme of the strategic plan is awareness of, promotion of and realization of human rights, particularly the right of return; secondary cross-cutting themes are good governance and gender awareness and equality. Furthermore, each program is infused with internal and external components; that is to say that BADIL operates and implements its initiatives, projects, and activities on local, national, regional and international levels.
