Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR): Domestic Politics
PSR's Domestic Politics Unit seeks to examine the Palestinian domestic scene and the process of governance. It focuses on the different facets of state building and political change. Issues of interest include institution building, security sector reform transition to democracy, clean government, civics, political trends, and political alignment. DPU seeks to develop various quantitative political indicators with a special focus on developing a Palestinian democracy index, a security sector index, as well as trends in political affiliation and the domestic balance of power.
