Panorama- the Palestinian Center for the Dissemination of Democracy & Community Development "was established in 1991 in Jerusalem . The center works to contribute to community development, and to promote issues that are related to the relationship between the citizen and the society, as a means to build a pluralistic Palestinian civil society.

"Panorama is a non- governmental, non- profit organization that runs its programs through three offices in Ramallah, Jerusalem , and Gaza . Our programs and activities aim to raise the awareness of the Palestinian people on democratic concepts, and notions of the civil society." [1]

"Respectively Panorama is a steering committee member of the World Movement for Democracy, the most prestigious and important world network for democracy institutions and activism and member of CIVICUS.
