Al Mezan Center for Human Rights "is a Palestinian non-governmental non-partisan organization based in the refugee camp of Jabalia in the Gaza Strip. Al Mezan’s mandate is “to promote, protect and prevent violations of human rights in general and economic, social and cultural (ESC) rights in particular, to provide effective aid to those victims of such violations, and to enhance the quality of life of the community in marginalized sectors of the Gaza Strip.

"The mission of the Mezan Center for Human Rights is to provide a secure and long-lasting foundation for the enjoyment of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT). While, given the current international situation Al Mezan must confront the increasing amount of daily violations of civil and political rights, its’ long term aim is to encourage and develop economic, social, and cultural rights. In this view, it acts as a monitoring and documentation center on violation of basic rights, which constitutes an essential basis for the work of local and international organizations. The Center is also a vehicle through which to provide legal aid and advocacy and build capacity and raise awareness of the local community on such fundamental issues such as basic human rights, democracy, and international humanitarian."
