The ICCG 2015 organising collective has reserved and is offering the last places available to Palestinian activists and civil society for a symbolic fee. Furthermore, we have decided to open the conference to all local registered participants for the full 5 days regardless of how many days were paid for. This is possible after having finalized our financial statements and making sure that participants’ registration fees and the generous donations of our supporters cover conference expenses. It goes without saying that we would have preferred to have an open and free conference. Yet having opted to remain outside the rubric of an academic institution, without sponsorships, and operating outside bureaucratic frames meant being free of strings, institutional formalities, but also meant building this conference from scratch to secure meeting space, forge partnerships with local and international actors and administrative and financial support that could assure holding this conference in the best of possible conditions.

As such we are offering the few places left for 50 NIS and these will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis.

To register please send us an email to latest by Saturday 25 July at midnight. We will not be able to accept registrations on site.

We have received complaints regarding Ankars Suites (accommodation option in Ramallah); namely, that they raised their prices. If you booked there, please pay attention to the reservation confirmation you received and the terms it includes. If the initial agreement was on the fares which were given to us (stated below), then stick to them and be ready to go through an argument when it is time to pay. Please accept our deepest apologies, we did not expect this happening. We have removed Ankars Suites from our list.

The fares as stated by Ankars Suites in March 2015:

US$ 90 / night – – private Single Room
US$ 110 / night – – private Double / Twin-bed Room
US$ 130 / night – – Triple Suite
