Alternative Information Center

The AIC was a local pioneer in the field of human rights, conducting some of the first ever data collection, research and analyses on issues such as Israeli torture of Palestinian prisoners, home demolitions and Palestinian residency rights in Jerusalem, all within their broader social, political, economic and cultural contexts.

The AIC strives to promote full individual and collective social, economic, political and gender equality, freedom and democracy and a rejection of the philosophy (ideology and praxis) (weltanschauung) of separation.

The most urgent regional task is to find a just solution to the century-old colonial conflict in Palestine and confront the ongoing Israeli occupation-regime within its international framework. The AIC method of action develops from the awareness that local struggle must be practically and analytically situated within the framework of the global justice struggle.
