BMU | More about us

05 March 2012

The Barrier Monitoring Unit (BMU) aims to contribute to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and thus engages in projects highlighting the loss of livelihoods and environmental damage resulting from the Barrier‘s construction.

One of the BMU’s flagship projects is the development of a post-graduate course for research and advocacy that will enable more Palestinian voices to engage with the popular discourse surrounding the occupied Palestinian territory and its needs.
