MoreThanAJob project’s partners in Palestine: the Nablus Chamber of Commerce & Industry and An-Najah National University organized a workshop titled ‘Strengthening Employment Policies Related to the Social and Solidarity Economy’ on 25 August 2021.

The main objective was to study the employment policies in Palestine and the role of SSE actors in the development and enhancement of these policies to foster job creation among the marginalized groups in Palestine. Additionally, it aimed to enhance the understanding of practitioners, policy-makers and other stakeholders on the SSE in Palestine to contribute to its development in Palestine.

The participants discussed the lack of employment in Palestine which is one of the main causes of social instability and highlighted the importance of addressing this problem. Through this workshop, they were equipped with common understanding on values and contributions of SSE to promote job creation in Palestine. 

MoreThanAJob project, funded by the European Union within the ENI CBC Med Programme, aims to enforce social ‎inclusion of vulnerable and unemployed populations ‎by applying ‎best practices for more effective collaboration of the social and ‎‎solidarity economy (SSE) actors with the public administration.‎
