The Center for Palestine Research and Studies is a member of the CIPE Reform Network. In 1996, 1997, 1998, and 2000 the Center received grants from the NED (via CIPE). Similarly in 1995 they received a NED grant via the Jerusalem Fund. [1]

"The Center for Palestine Research and Studies (CPRS) was founded in March 1993 in response to the need for active Palestinian scholarship on issues related to Palestine. The Center is an independent academic research and policy analysis institution seeking to fully explore and understand new local and regional development and assess their impact on the Palestinians. Because CPRS is independent of political factions, it is in a unique position of being able to serve as a forum for meetings of Palestinian and international researchers from various political backgrounds and ideologies in a free academic and professional atmosphere.

"The Center for Palestinian Research and Studies acts as an independent think tank" for Palestinian policy and strategy community. It seeks to produce research that is objective and based on rigorous and sound methodology. The Center does not adopt political positions other than advocating free, democratic exchange and expression. It is fully committed to information exchange and to publishing research according to professional standards. CPRS encourages outstanding scholars in Palestinian political, strategic, and economic issues to actively participate in the current dialogue regarding the formulation of Palestinian priorities and options and to gather a range of perspectives."
