UNOPS Partner " The Office of Quartet"

The mandate of the Office of the Quartet is to “help the Palestinians as they build the institutions and economy of a viable Palestinian State that is able to take its place as a peaceful and prosperous partner, at peace with Israel and its other neighbors” and more recently to work to enable “significantly greater independence and sovereignty for the Palestinian Authority over its affairs.” More specifically, in the area of rule of law, the office is mandated to “help identify and secure international support in order to address the institutional governance needs of the Palestinian State, focusing as a matter of urgency on the rule of law.”

In June 2015, the OQR transitioned to the Office of the Quartet (OQ), which reports directly to the Quartet Envoys, with a continued focus on the Quartet objectives of Palestinian economic and institutional development and empowerment, which will, in turn, help to advance the Palestinian-Israeli political process towards achieving the two-state solution.

Within OQ, the Rule of Law and Governance unit has worked with the Palestinian Authority (PA), the Government of Israel (GoI), donor countries and other organizations to help the PA strengthen its rule of law capacity, focusing on supporting the Palestinian justice and security sectors, thereby helping ensure stability in the Palestinian territory. For the past eight years, this work has focused on two key areas: (1) expanding the legal and security footprint of the PA and (2) strengthening Palestinian Rule of Law (RoL) institutions.
