Palestine Institute for Public Diplomacy (PIPD)

Connecting Digitally. Mobilizing Towards Liberation


The Palestine Institute for Public Diplomacy is an independent, non-governmental organization that aims to shift discourse and policy with movements and decision-makers around the world through people’s engagement and advocacy. The PIPD is based in Palestine and is led by a board of prominent Palestinians from the private sector, academia, and civil society. Our small team is spread internationally between Palestine, Belgium, Germany, and Jordan.

In Germany too, the Palestine Institute for Public Diplomacy (The PIPD) is active in the field of Palestinian advocacy. The reason for this step is, on the one hand, the enormous influence of German politics on the situation of the Palestinians and, on the other hand, the absence of a fact-based, fair discussion of the Palestinian struggle for self determination, freedom, justice and equal rights.

PIPD and its digital platform Rābet seek to strengthen Palestinians’ collective sumud as a global, intersectional movement for freedom, justice, equity and rights for all.

Rābet is the digital platform of the PIPD. Rābet is a digital space for Palestine by Palestinians, which listens, engages and uplifts. Rābet celebrates the beauty and diversity of Palestinian identity, society, culture, food, art and politics, while challenging the systems of oppression and injustices that we face as a people.
