Palestine Human Rights Information Center (PHRIC) "was established in 1986 under the auspices of the Arab Studies Society as an independent, non-governmental organization. PHRIC's main interests include: 1) human rights monitoring, documentation, and reporting (of both Israel and the PA) based on thorough field investigation and eyewitness testimony; 2) advocacy and intervention for the protection and relief of human rights victims through cooperation with local human rights organizations, urgent action alerts, and formal representation to human rights organizations and U.N. agencies; 3) education and promotion of human rights standards in Palestinian society through community-based projects, seminars and publications. PHRIC runs a Human Rights Education Campaign, a Housing Rights Project and the Palestine Housing Rights Movement." [1]
